2754520, I'm inclined to think it's an honest mistake, tbh.

Obviously should've double checked that with research, but I suspected that's what dude meant when I first saw the story. That would be a WILDLY out-of-pocket line even by racist broadcaster standards, lol. Clearly he thought dude's dad was Kevin Porter. At least that's what I thought when I first saw it. I didn't even know the story about KPJ's dad.

Will probably get a suspension or whatever due to not doing the research, and his social media's going to be fucked up for the foreseeable future, but this is one of the rare apologies I'm inclined to believe, lol.

And broadcasters should probably cool it on "pull the trigger" or gun analogies. Seems like it's bound to create inadvertently fucked up statements or social media pushback in general. Especially as those comments pertain to the team formerly known as the Bullets, lol.
