ESPN Racist Jeremy Lin Headline (VIDEO)

Skooter reporting 02/19/12

ESPN.com’s mobile web site posted an outrageously racist headline “Chink in the Armor” for the Knick’s loss Friday night with a picture of the Asian-American NBA sensation Jeremy Lin enclosed.

The headline was eventually deleted, and ESPN issued an apology late this morning.

“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, " ESPN said.
