Like many other Seattle Seahawks fans, Washington State Representative Joe Fitzgibbon was angry that his team lost to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. The Seahawks are supposed to be unbeatable at home, but the Cards limited them to just 10 points and came away with a crucial 17-10 victory to keep themselves alive in the playoff hunt. Fitzgibbon probably should have tipped his cap and said “good game” after the tough battle.
Instead, the politician got himself in trouble by doing something we see countless athletes do every season — tweeting without thinking. Fitzgibbon called Arizona a “racist wasteland” after the game.

One would think Fitzgibbon would apologize after writing something like that, but he didn’t seem to take it as seriously as some of his followers. He offered somewhat of a non-apology and said people are taking his comment too seriously.
