I'm sure if it was a hockey game and the Rangers won on a goal by a black player, and a white journalist said "some lucky lady in nyc is gonna enjoy some fried chicken tonight" no one here would care.

How does that make sense ?

I agree with the dumbass part but I'm sticking with my original statement and saying he doesnt have to apologize. The world we live in today is way to damn sensitive and overreacts to every fu*king thing.

I'll say again, it's Twitter not his job so what he says on there I dont take seriously or hold him to any standards on.
wait so you're saying that public figures should be allowed to say whatever they want, whether it be racist or otherwise offensive, and suffer no consequences in their work place as long as they don't say it while on the job or on air?

that's the dumbest thing i've ever heard. if skip bayless goes on twitter and tweets racist, dumb stuff everyone's gonna be calling for him to apologize or ESPN to discipline him.

that's just part of their job, part of being a public figure. everything a person who is in the public eye says will be judged and scrutinized and it will reflect on the organizations that employ them.

usually in america no matter what a media figure says they just have to apologize, go to sensitivity training, serve a suspension, etc. and everyone moves on no matter how racist what they said was. but the point is the employer still has to discipline them to show that they don't condone that type of behavior and it's not okay.

jason whitlock's comments weren't that bad actually, but still offensive. he should just issue an apology and everyone will forget about it in a week.

I get what your going for, just don't feel like the food stereotype replaces a s3xual one. I mean, think about that sentence who would say that in that context.

Anyone with common sense can see this is cut and dry. He needs to apologize, it was inappropriate. End of story.

They aren't even asking for him to be fired like every other organization does. He needs to apologize. If he had dissed Blacks, Gays, Jew or Hispanics they'd be calling for him to get fired.
But, he does make jokes about those people and has always done it in his career. Anybody that knows this clown is used to this kind of stuff. He was fired from ESPN for the same kind of sh*t.

If Skip tweeted something then I wouldnt give a fu*k honestly. But, if he wrote it or did it on air then sure I would expect to see some discipline especially from ESPN's high and mighty a.sses. But, we know nothing will be done because it's FOX Sports/MSN they aren't as concerned about alienating the masses or they wouldnt have hired Whitlock or host his podcast shows which are way worse than anything his fat a.ss puts on Twitter.


What I would really prefer is if athletes, politicians, entertainers and any fu*king body else in a public position could say what the fu*k they felt and not have to apologize for it. If that's how they feel then so be it. If Lebron or Bill O'Reilly wants to come out and say some racist sh*t, so be it. I can choose not to support or like that person for it and move the fu*k on with my life. Who are we to judge what others get to do and how they do it?
