ESPN Posts Racist Jeremy Lin Headline

Last night, ESPN posted a racist Jeremy Lin title on their NBA mobile page. Here is the response i got from ESPN.

“Thanks for contacting ESPN. Last night, ESPN.com’s mobile web site posted an offensive headline referencing Jeremy Lin at 2:30 am. The headline was removed at 3:05 am. We are conducting a complete review of our cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen again. We regret and apologize for this mistake.”

It’s a bit comical that no large media outlet writes about the racist undertones that contributed to Jeremy’s lack of recruitment in college and the NBA, but then these blatantly racist headlines can be released. Food for thought.
