Racist Tweet Gets Greek Olympian Kicked Out Of Olympic Team.


It all started when a Greek triple jumper posted a racist joke on twitter
Voula Papachristou was kicked out of her national team for mocking African migrants and expressing support for a far right politician.

 The comment drew huge criticism from other users of the social networking site. One responded saying: ‘If you are serious, the Greek Olympic Team should put you on the first plane and send you back.’
Another wrote: ‘Xenophobic comments from a Greek athlete in the Olympic mission are unacceptable. We are ashamed.’
After initially insisting her comment had been ‘a joke’, the 23-year-old yesterday issued a lengthy apology. But she was still expelled from the team by the Greek Olympic Committee, who said her statements had been ‘contrary to the values and ideas of the Olympic movement’.

  1. And if a male athlete had made sexist or misogynist remarks...

    In a world where anti-racist liberals use free speech rhetoric to defend the indefensible, from an unregulated internet to pornography glorifying simulated gang-rape, talking about what's insensitive and senseless just doesn't cut it, I'm afraid.

    This is just another incident showing people joining the ranks of millions of hypocrites and idiots who can see that racism is a no-no but think misogyny is a constitutional right.
