New York, Feb 20 (ANI): Jeremy Lin has brushed off ESPN's racial slur on the headline of one of their stories on Sunday, saying that he did not think anyone meant to be racist.
The sports network fired the overnight headline writer who wrote the offending headline that called Lin "chink in the armor", suspended an anchor who said the phrase on air and apologised deeply, promising to be "better in the future."
"They've apologized and so from my end, I don't care anymore," the New York Daily News quoted Lin as saying.
He dazzled the Garden by leading the Knicks to their eighth win in nine games.
"You have to learn to forgive, and I don't even think that was intentional," he said.
Taking a hard line to contain the furor, ESPN suspended anchor Max Bretos for 30 days because he used the expression on Wednesday when he asked Knicks legend Walt "Clyde" Frazier on air about Lin.
"If there is a chink in the armor, where can he improve his game?" Bretos asked.
The question's wording went almost entirely unnoticed at the time. In video of the moment, Bretos did not appear to be attempting to make a pun.
He tweeted his apologies on Saturday, saying he meant no racial reference but would try hard to avoid making the mistake again.
"My wife is Asian, would never intentionally say anything to disrespect her and that community.
"Despite intention, phrase was inappropriate in this context," Bretos said. (ANI)
