This hot, tall, blonde athlete has already been banned from the 2012 Olympics for a racist tweet [pic]

The opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics is starting today, but Greek triple jumper Voula Papachristou won’t be there with her teammates because she was banned  for posting a racist tweet.

Voula will be triple jumping all the way home for tweeting: “With so many Africans in Greece…at least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat home made food!”

Not ideal that Voula.

“On Wednesday, Voula Papachristou became the first athlete to be banned from the Olympics for a message that she posted on Twitter”

“I don’t know if they want to make an example out of me because of my profile, this is for others to judge, but what I believe is that they used their maximum disciplinary power on me for this,” Papachristou said. “They went straight to the final stage in excluding me from the team, which was highly excessive.” [USAToday]

Come now should thought of that before you made a kak joke for everyone to see.

No medals for you.

Ποιο είναι το πρόβλημα με αυτούς τους αθλητές; Έχουν χάσει το σεβασμό στον άνθρωπο;
Αηδιασμένος με την έλλειψη σεβασμού της προς τους άλλους.

If that is all she tweeted, I think this ‘punishment’ is a bit over the top.
Unless it is for lame jokes.
Life is too short for lame jokes and bad coffee.

I’m not even sure that’s racist. Aren’t the West Nile Mosquitoes originally from Africa? That sounds more like a joke than a racist comment. I don’t even see how that’s offensive. Maybe being Irish, we’re so used to ‘Paddy jokes’ the world over that I’m confused between a jest and a racist comment. Really though, I seriously doubt a single African was offended by that comment!

That was a racist joke. She’s comparing africans to mosquitoes. Its completely derogatory! At least Africans are hard working compared to the rest of her nation! The lazy whelps! @Daddy. She may be Tall, Hot but she’s also a dumb blonde: West Nile has more middle eastern descent africans than the africans she was trying to talk about.

Also not sure if that’s really racist. I’m white and from Africa. Which means the joke applies. No offence taken.
