Twitter reacts to announcer using racially insensitive phrase describing Russell Westbrook

Russell Westbrook

On Wednesday night as the Oklahoma City Thunder hosted the Memphis Grizzlies, Thunder announcer Brian Davis said something he might want to take back. After watching Russell Westbrook turn a steal into points with a sweet assist, Davis said, “Westbrook is out of his cotton pickin’ mind.”

Now, that phrase isn’t exactly politically correct. So, it’s hardly surprising that this stirred up a hornet’s nest on Twitter.



There were plenty of other, spicier responses to Brian Davis using that phrase that are a bit too intense to feature here. But you get the point. It wasn’t exactly well received.
