Jeremy Lin and the Knicks lost to the Hornets Friday, ending a 7-game winning streak, and this is the headline ESPN.com went with overnight. It has since been removed.
Somebody’s getting fired. Who could possibly think this is an acceptable headline?
Update: ESPN released an apology.
Last night, ESPN.com’s mobile web site posted an offensive headline referencing Jeremy Lin at 2:30 am ET. The headline was removed at 3:05 am ET. 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.
