J.J. Redick Filmed on Video Calling Chinese NBA Fans ‘Chinks’

Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard J.J. Redick is under fire after calling his Chinese fans “chinks” in a video that has gone viral.

The video was produced by Chinese media company Tencent to wish China a Happy Lunar New Year.

Two cuts of the video were produced, but naturally the one cut that shows Redick using the racial slur is going viral.

“I just wanted to wish all the NBA chink fans in China a very happy Chinese new year.” Redick says in the video.

People have been voicing their outrage on Twitter demanding answers.

Redick has gone on Twitter acknowledging the incident, but didn’t give much of an explantion.

In 2014, popular gossip-site Bossip reported that Redick allegedly called then girlfriend Vanessa Lopez a “Dity N-Word” And “Stupid Sp*C” in emails that were leaked.

The NBA nor the 76ers have yet to release a statement on the incident.
