Seriously？JJ Redick used the racist word “Chink” in the official NBA video for celebrating Chinese New Year to Chinese fans. We all know what that means and how disrespectful and insulting it is to Chinese. And we need an official explanation to this. @NBA@espn
@AdamSilverNBA Dear Mr.Silver, There is a video about the new years greetings from NBA players.76ers guard J.J.Redick said the word “chink” in the interview.All of us know how disrespectful it is to Chinese.I hope NBA can give us an official statement regarding the above.
Please give our Chinese NBA fans an explanation for JJ Redick the insult to China，It’s unbearable for us especially in Chinese New Year.This is serious racial discrimination. pic.twitter.com/Erpv8DWgWx
Redick has gone on Twitter acknowledging the incident, but didn’t give much of an explantion.
Just saw a video that is being circulated of me wishing a happy new year to NBA fans in China.Clearly I was tongue tied, as the word I purportedly said is not in my vocabulary. I’m disappointed that anyone would think I would use that word. I love & respect our friends in China.
