If you haven’t seen this already please indulge me for a moment. It drives me crazy when people from other countries bitch and moan about American arrogance. Then people like this remind me why they do so…
“New York Liberty guard Cappie Pondexter has apologized after causing an Internet uproar with comments on her Twitter account that were deemed insensitive toward victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami.
“On Saturday, Pondexter tweeted: ‘What if God was tired of the way they treated their own people in there own country! Idk guys he makes no mistakes.’
“She later tweeted: ‘u just never knw! They did pearl harbor so u can’t expect anything less.’ Pondexter also used used the racially derogatory term “jap,” when referring to someone who was offended by her comments.”
Now…for those of you who don’t know what the New York Liberty is…it’s ok – you shouldn’t. It’s New York’s WNBA team. So apparently Pondexter things since she’s an athlete it’s ok for her to say whatever she wants. Now first off – I can’t take away from the fact that she’s probably a decent athlete…but really bitch? You play in the WNBA, the (Watched Not By Anyone) league.
And really…I didn’t realize we were still holding grudges from World War 2. Guess it’s time to start having words with the Nazi’s and Fascist’s again.
