Sixers Delete Politically Incorrect Tweet Aimed At Thad Young

We are all struggling at this point to continue to watch these Sixers games, that in reality mean nothing except for having implications on how the ping-pong balls could potentially shake out for the Sixers in the draft lottery. But if you are like me and currently watching the Sixers game vs the Atlanta Hawks, you are casually glancing over Twitter, hoping to read the reaction of other fans about the game. Unfortunately most fans aren’t watching, and it took the Sixers tweeting out something that came off as racist, for anyone to pay attention to tonight’s game.

At 8:37 the Sixers tweeted “@yungsmoove21 throws down an extra mean monkey dunk! Give him 28 points (29 pts is his season)”. My firs thought was I’m sure that the Sixers didn’t mean this racist and it was just in bad taste, but the more that I think about, how could this not be meant in racist way?

The Sixers took down the tweet, but everyone’s favorite Philly sports tweeter FanSince09, caught the Sixers in act.

The Sixers just can’t win this season I guess.
