A White announcer put his foot in his mouth when he said that Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook was “out of his cotton picking mind.”
Fox Sports Oklahoma play-by-play man Brian Davis made the comment on Wednesday night during a game between the Thunder and the Memphis Grizzlies after an impressive play by Westbrook to his teammate Terrance Ferguson.
Westbrook would later cement his place in history by once again averaging a triple-double for the entire season.
Twitter users took to the platform to blast Davis for his remarks.
It crazy how even when achieving a great accomplishments, we are still "cotton picking" Russ achieved something great last night back to back triple double season. Congrats Russ. A shame it was tainted by #RidiculousRacism #RussellWestbrook #MVP
