Why Is This Ok, ESPN? (Update)

One of my best friends posted the following tweet a few minutes ago.

That tweet contained the following image:

And I have been livid ever since. Is this for real? Who is the managing editor who allowed this to be published?

I submitted a complaint to ESPN and I urge anyone reading this to do so as well. If enough of us say something, or draw attention to this horrible decision, I hope something will be done about it. Granted, I’m not holding my breath they’ll even acknowledge this, but what’s right is right.

You can contact ESPN here! Feel free to tweet and Facebook it as well. This is not ok.

Update: ESPN emailed the following to me this afternoon

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.

Still doesn’t excuse the usage of such a term, with reference to an Asian American, but at least they did something about it.

Pregnancy Agrees with Candace Parker

Stunning

Stunning

Tell me she isn’t positively glowing?

I was just talking to my family about how I hadn’t seen any shots of her since she announced her pregnancy and wasn’t sure how far along she was.

Oh, and ESPN Magazine has a wonderful feature story on her. I suggest you read it ASAP. If you don’t already adore her, like I do, then you will.

ETA: That gorgeous shot of Candace will be featured on the cover of the new issue of ESPN Magazine, on newsstands Friday! Can’t wait to get this on my mailbox!
