February 19, 2012 by staff 

ESPN Apologizes For Offensive Headline On Jeremy Lin, ESPN apologized on Saturday for an anti-Asian slur that appeared with a story about Knicks star point guard Jeremy Lin published on one of its websites overnight.

The headline — “Chink in the Armor” — accompanied an onlineanlysis that blamed Lin, a Chinese-American, for the Knick’s surprising 89-85 loss to the Hornets at a sold-out Madison Square Garden on Friday night.
The loss ended the Knicks’ seven-game winning streak.

In a statement, ESPN called the headline, which was up on the mobile website for about 35 minutes early Saturday morning, “offensive.”

It said it was “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.”
