Sometimes its best to not say anything when you open your mouth.
The Charlotte Hornets have decided to part ways with radio play-by-play announcer John Focke over a tweet he sent that included the N-word.
The Hornets announced on Thursday that Focke has been fired for violating the organization’s social media policy.
Obviously, Focke tied to say it was a typo but nobody believes you, you need more peoples.
Focke explained the mistake saying, “I made a horrific error while attempting to tweet about the Denver-Utah game. I don’t know how I mistyped. I had (and have) no intention of ever using that word. I take full responsibility for my actions. I have been sick to my stomach about it every [sic] since. I’m truly sorry that this happened and I apologize to those I offended.”
This is another reminder that while freedom of speech is free, it can still cost you. Will Focke learn from this teachable moment? Probably not.
