History made. In crossing the finish line of the Indy 500 on Sunday, Takuma Sato became the first Japanese champion in the race's 101-year history.
Incredible feat, right? Well, not according to one sportswriter. Upon seeing Sato cross the checkered flag into history, The Denver Post's Terry Frei inexplicably tweeted, "Nothing specifically personal, but I am very uncomfortable with a Japanese driver winning the Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend."
Wait ... what?
Frei, who is white, immediately got blasted for his racist tweet, before offering an apology — one that The Denver Post didn't buy, as they terminated his employment. Just peep the way Frei got dragged with zero chill.
Don't you hate when you get screen shot?
Say that again.
Seriously! His racism reared its ugly head during what was a great moment in racing history.
We're not buying this at all ...
The dude did it to himself. Now hold all this slander.
Yes, you did, Terry.
Come on, now.
Brutal read of him saying sorry.
When racist Twitter fingers leave you unemployed for Memorial Day weekend.
