ESPN's racial slur on its news web page has caused an uproar. The station took it down within 35 minutes and apologized. The writer for this title was also fired swiftly after this article was taken down.

ESPN pulled the racist title off its website within 35 minuntes and apologized

Under Lin's leadership, the Knicks lost the chance to win their eighth straight game. Later ESPN posted an article titled 'Chink in the Armor' on its mobile news page pointing to Lin's mistakes in the game as the reason the Knicks lost. The word 'chink,' however, is a derogatory word for a Chinese person. The title caused an immediate uproar and ESPN took it down after 35 minutes and apologized. Lin has endured a lot of criticism while playing in the NBA. When he first joined the Knicks some fans dissed him and called him a 'Chinese take-out delivery boy who plays in NBA'

Some also said Lin's eyes are too small so he can't see the ball when it's passed to him. Even when Linsanity started, some hoped that he would mess up.

Lin is not God, so he will make mistakes. You can say his techniques aren't mature enough or that he's just too young so he's inexperienced. But using discriminating words to make personal attacks that's waaaay outta line!
