Looks like he deleted his Twitter account.
Another new LOH for the University
Give it a rest.

according to the articles writer
Italian sausage = racist
polish kielbasa = racist
Pic Sigs are for losers.

good find. Jin was great
Seriously. You're either world class dumb or you have an agenda at the outset to write that it's arguably worse. One is arguably off color and the other is straight trading in racist sterotypes.
please just ban him
See my next post
Does anyone else feel our society needs to chill out with the screaming of racism at every single comment? Damn, it just seems like everyone is walking around so uptight and waiting for the next person to make a questionable comment so they can slam them.
It's getting to the point where every citizen is going to need a PR person and a lawyer on speed dial. There is a difference between a blatant racist slur and a light joke.
Sure, Stefon should have thought a little more about the specific words he used but as others have pointed out it's NOWHERE CLOSE to the other comments made by others. ie: the 2 inches of pain comment or using a derogatory term like "chink"
The worst part is that he makes an innocent joke and then is berated by actual racist comments from all over the internet. Many were OSU fanboys still pissed he didn't pick their school. He deleted both his twitter and facebook because of this..
LOL at a borderline (at most) offensive tweet by a high school athlete being front page news. Maybe civilization would be better off if the world ended this year.
With Lin's play recently, the media has to find a way to keep this story going. Wouldn't be surprised if it doesn't make a national newspaper, PTI, Around the Horn, and everyone other ESPN show in the next few days.
Absurd. I hate the media.
Who the hell studies for the SAT? GTFO!
Diggs can tweet whatever the (*&^$ he wants
This is hilarious.

It might not be racist...but it sounds incredibly ignorant.
Yup, definintely not racist. BREAKING NEWS: 18 year old tweeted something dumb

"In the Spirit of the Pack"
Sure, of course he shouldn't have said it - he probably doesn't fully comprehend that every single thing he posts will be read and scrutinized nationally.
But at the end of the day, it's just an 18-year-old kid that heard something he thought was funny and tweeted it - who cares?
if somehow, Diggs would have said "he's goog though"
I would have rofl'd
it's the same as referring a german to kraut, an indian to curry, an african american to fried chicken, a hispanic to a burrito. Of course there's a hint of racism if you need to make a funny by referring to someone's ethnicity, why else would he write that. With that said, it's typical teenage immaturity so hopefully he learns something about how social media projects you as a person. Certainly not in comparison to a grown up like whitlock making a much more offensive tweet.

You are correct, Pride, at the heart of it is teenage immaturity. We have all been there. The problem for him is that he is, for the moment, in a spotlight. Immaturity and fame do not mix well.
I love how stupid assh*les like you accuse people of being racist while using racist statements right in the middle of your accusations. I guess you're one of those geniuses that thinks only white people can be racists. You're as bad as anyone that you are making accusations about. Leave the hypocrisy at the door, jackass.
how was that in any way racist?
But yes, I am a horrible bigot towards white people. I know they have so much to overcome, but those crackers can rot.
I'm just shocked that nobody has said "reverse racism" yet.
