trolling? Neither one of the theories you proposed explains the mentioning of Africans going to greece and west nile bugs coming also. And you're going to tell me she was referring to herself as a west nile mosquito? so then who's the Africans? I hope you seriously don't believe what you typed, why are you looking for an escape route just so you can say that the joke wasn't racist????? she herself acknowledges what she said was wrong, if she meant something else she would have explained it to defend herself in hopes of being allowed back into the games.
West Nile isnt just in Africa. It supposedly originated in Uganda and has spread around the world, even to my home town. She didnt say anything about them bringing west nile there with them. She just said the west nile mosquitos, which orginally came from uganda (come on, stay with me), now can eat from the people they started off eating from.
She still deserved the boot for being dumb enough to make that joke knowing just how ignorant and sensitive people are.
