Insensitive Tweets of the Day: In what should come as a surprise to nobody, approximately .012 seconds after the final whistle of Thursday’s USA vs. Japan gold medal soccer match, an onslaught of racially-charged tweets hit the Interwebs. Because sports and war tragedies are equal in the minds of some knuckleheads, many tweets declared the 2-1 outcome — in favor of the United States — “payback for Pearl Harbor.” Realistically, it was payback for a shootout loss in last year’s World Cup final, but even in that case, the tweet storm which ensued trumpeted the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Japan Daily News has compiled a bunch of the offending tweets, for the entire world to see.
I wish I could say I’m surprised, but I’m not. In the least.
Just sick to my stomach.
F: for fuck’s sake.
The predictability doesn’t make it any better.
To any and all hurt by these piece of shit tweets, I can offer only my apologies and a reaffirmation of my collection services for anyone who could use them.
White Americans need to get the fuck over Pearl Harbor. SHIT!
