Ah, she should have been more sensitive in her use of Twitter but like a lot of folks today, she ended up being the "fall guy" for her unfortunate comments.

Lol, i dont know what to make of this.

She was stupid for making that remark but i dont think she should have been ejected from the games. Perhaps fined? Though that comment is really offensive :/

Good find OP! I also read this morning NK walked out of a football match because a SK flag got shown.
Can this ruddy country do anything right?

Jokers of the world.

She was actually bounced because the Greek Gov didn't want to alienate the sponsers paying for their olympic team or to have them pull the sponsorship on the whole Greek team thus sending them all home as a result.

On a seperate note....thats one hot lady...grrrrrrrrr

I am suddenly reminded of what happened during the olympics in Nazi germany back in the 30s? or was it 40s?

Remember how they treated some of the athletes back then as a host country? Wasn't much of an outcry back then to that treatment....just goes to show how stupidly over PC this world has become.

Two things here....

1.) I saw this earlier and thought that her comment is not one bit racist. It is a joke. A very funny joke. The Liberals are crying racist because she is white.

2.) Photoshop Friday is definitely going to take advantage of her photo if ya know what I mean.

I thought the joke was extremely funny and didn't find it racist. Herp Derp because you are racist Domo. It wasn't disparaging a race at all. If a bunch of English fruit bats (*cough*) swarmed the country (there is only one country that matters kids) and started sucking blood and someone made a joke about the bats nomming on homemade food no one would care. It's a funny joke. Making it into a racist joke is more racist than the joke. My example was pretty bad but if I didn't use white people I would be a racist.

She's too cute for me to get mad. I don't care what she said. MEOW.

ETA: WTF is Prevacid and why is YouTube so intent on showing me their ads? I get the weirdest YouTube ads.

You are correct. The claim of racism is begging the desired result.
It is funny joke that any late night American comedian would tell to an audience that would laugh like crazy.

The Left, the Liberals, the anti-Whites, the true racists are out in force trying to make the Olympics their little race baby.

Its amazing how many people will deny blatant racisim because it was uttered by a pretty girl.

Anyway, all those folks that support this racism are in good company. You are not the only folk who think this behaviour is acceptable;

the Nazis treated America's black athletes better than their own team at those Olympics,a few said so in interviews later.oh big mistake speaking about immigrants in any European country,like them or lump them.shouldn't it be the other way around?when in Rome springs to mind,but in this crazy world you can't upset the corporations.they are the only ones who benefit from the endless supply of immigrants.you can't even make a joke nowadays,perhaps all the bleeding hearts should get of their high horses.I see nothing racist or even offensive in this joke,storm in a teacup.playing this oh that's racist against Africans game only helps in keeping the perception of the dumb negroe who needs special protection which certainly is not the case.

How is it racist to tell a joke about mosquitos and Blacks?

If a Black person tells a joke about apple pie and Whites is that considered racist?

You seriously need to consider what you are saying. The joke is about bugs biting people. The joke is not demeaning or belittling Blacks. You have been brainwashed by the racists.

When I went to Thailand the wife commented about all the mosquitoes biting me and not her and I joked that the mossies had a craving for aussie food.. so I guess that makes me a terribly, filthy racist as well?

Totally. You're just an awful person. You can't ever poke gentle fun at anyone who is not your clone. And if you make fun of your clone it's clonist. Nope, no jokes.
