ESPN Apologizes for Racist Jeremy Lin Headline

First of all who is Jeremy Lin?

Jeremy Lin is a professional basketball player with the New York Knicks of the NBA. After receiving no athletic scholarship offers out of high school and being un-drafted out of college, the 2010 Harvard graduate reached a contract deal later that year with his hometown Golden State Warriors. In late 2011, Lin spent less than two weeks with the Houston Rockets, moving to the Knicks at the very end of the year. In early 2012, he finally got a chance to shine, and began dominating the league, setting off Linsanity.
Lin is one of the few Asian Americans in NBA history, and the first American player in the league to be of Chinese or Taiwanese descent

We all make mistakes. Especially at But ESPN made a dozy early this morning.
Following the New York Knick' first loss with phenom Jeremy Lin starting at point guard - at home, to the woeful New Orleans Hornets, with Lin turning the ball over nine times - the self-proclaimed World Wide Leader in Sports plastered its mobile homepage with the following headline:

The Asian epithet - which is meant differently in the context of that phrase, of course - was removed after about a half hour and the network then released this statement: Last night, ESPN.com mobile web site posted an offensive headline referencing Jeremy Lin at . The headline was removed at . We are conducting a complete review of our cross-platform editorial procedures and are determining appropriate disciplinary action to ensure this does not happen again. We regret and apologize for this mistake. The Knicks had won seven straight games heading into last night's contest, with Lin's record-breaking play earning praise around the country. Sarah Palin even talked about the Harvard graduate... for some reason.

Justin Bieber  was caught having a bad day over the weekend


It looks like Justin Bieber was caught having a bad day over the weekend.

In a new video making its way around the Internet, two giggly fans of the young singer spotted him at Disneyworld - on a ride with his father and girlfriend Selena Gomez - and told the artist they followed him on Twitter. His apparent response?

F-ck you! What would prompt such vitriol? Especially from a celebrity known for being so accommodating to his fans? Who knows. But among the shaky camera work and confusing setting in the following video, you definitely can make out Justin's voice uttering those two words. Watch and listen for yourself:
