Darnell Dockett Tweeted A Stupid/Insensitive Asian Joke And Refuses To Apologize


Arizona Cardinals linebacker Darnell Dockett tweeted a racist joke. You would think that in 2013, he would know not to do this, but if you think that, you don’t know Darnell Dockett, man who tweets about his gun, his digits to Katherine Webb and spits in his teammate’s face. (This teammate, if you were wondering.)

Darnell Dockett Racist Tweet

Alright, you don’t do that. It’s dumb. It’s insensitive. It’s not funny. But, if you’re dumb enough to do that, you’re usually just smart enough to apologize and move on.

OK, sure, maybe you’re not racist. The first step in convincing us, however, would be to apologize. That’s your next tweet, right?

Upsetting people with insensitive jokes is Darnell Dockett’s favorite pastime. Great to know.

?

Subsititute “dumb” or “insensitive” there, Darnell, and we’re finally in agreement on something.

    Do people really need to apologize for being stupid all the time? They very rarely ever mean it.
    Just chalk it up to what it is. An ignorant person making a stupid statement in a public place, thus providing said public with the evidence that they no longer need to listen to that person speak.
    In a way, it’s a public service, for the rest of us.

    Are we supposed to assume he is referring to the shape of their eyes, or the normal usage of the statement that means to realize something? I could see the latter if he was correlating it to the working conditions in the Apple factories there.

    I was just walking around wondering what Darnell Dockett thinks is funny…so I could get offended. Not really.

  • John Smith

    You’re giving the guy to much credit. No way the ape is clever enough to come up with a joke like that, at least not intentionally.

  • Abe Assad

    The common usage of “eye opening” is what I thought of immediately when I saw it, and I was just surprised that everyone here went right to the racist connotation which makes less sense to me.
