ESPN’s Jeremy Lin Headline Was “Chink In The Armor,” Then It Was Changed (UPDATE)
While we very much doubt this was intentional, and wouldn’t give it a second thought if Jeremy Lin were not of Asian descent, someone has to be thinking before putting up a headline like this. It is not on the main ESPN.com website, but was visible on the mobile sites formatted for phones and tablets.
UPDATE Shortly after this post, ESPN updated the mobile headline to read “All Good Things…”
UPDATE 2: ESPN has released a statement on the headline. It reads:
Last night, ESPN.com’s mobile web site posted an offensive headline referencing Jeremy Lin at 2:30 am ET. The headline was removed at 3:05 am ET. 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.
