ESPN Apologizes For "Racist" Tweet!

ESPN played “Dixie,” which upset many viewers...

Cue the outrage!

ESPN later explained & apologized for the tweet:

'“Dixie” was not part of the graphic when the piece was  initially produced and approved, a source told SN. Instead, the song was  dropped into the piece at the last moment by a staffer in the  production truck. A source said ESPN addressed the issue with the  staffer, but would not elaborate on the outcome.

“It was a mistake to use this song. We regret having done so and we  apologize,” said ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz in a statement to SN.'
