The Radio Jock Who Tweeted About "Dirty Mexicans"
Former major league pitcher turned radio personality Mike Bacsik had a Twitter meltdown after his beloved Dallas Mavericks were defeated by the San Antonio Spurs. His contribution to the conversation: "congrats to all the dirty mexicans in San Antonio." At first Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket in Dallas suspended him indefinitely for his racist comments. Then they fired him. Bacsik was semi-remorseful, telling ESPNDallas.com, "Obviously, I made a terrible mistake. It was very bad and stupid on my part." But he was mostly kind of full of it: "When you tweet like I did, you can't see the sarcasm. It's not a good joke. You can't tell if it was pure hate or sarcasm." We're with him on the "not a good joke" part.
