NFL Reporter’s Racist Tweets Against Asians and Blacks Unearthed

A series of highly offensive, racist, and homophobic tweets from Lindsey Ok, a sports reporter covering the Baltimore Ravens from the National Football League, have been unearthed by Black Sports Online targeting Asians, Black people, and the LGBT+ community.

Ok made many horrible social media posts, all of which are now deleted, where she mocked people for their race or their sexuality. One of them includes playing on the stereotype about Asian people and driving.

A post from the year before describes how she she allegedly yelled at an Asian woman.

Help me there’s Asians everywhere,” Ok, who works for RavensWire that is part of the USA Today network, said in a deleted tweet uncovered by Rawstory.

After the backlash, Ok posted what can be considered as a “limited apology” where she apologized to “anyone that may have been offended by those tweets,” then further stating that “I can confidently tell you that I don’t have a single racist, homophobic or bad bone in my body,” according to Awful Announcing.

Ok, when confronted by a Twitter user who goes by the handle name of @Whitsiee, tried to defend her apology letter by saying that she was “going for the truth not an excuse.”

I didn’t even want to say anything at all – I felt no matter what I said, it would get skewed some sort of way,” she continued in one of her replies to the user.

There is no official word yet coming from RavensWire about Ok’s case or if she will even face any sort of disciplinary action or termination after this.
