This should be grounds for firing her!
Cappie Pondexter of the WNBA’s Liberty hateful things about Japan's tragedy!
"What if God was tired of the way they treated their own people in there own country! Idk guys he makes no mistakes."
"u just never knw! They did pearl harbor so u can't expect anything less."
It’s baffling how ignorant that is! The way they treat their own people? Japan has one of the highest standards of living in the world — their people are treated extremely well.
After the biting criticism started to roll in, Pondexter issued an apology for what she said.
She wrote in a series of tweets:
"I wanna apologize to anyone I may hurt or offended during this tragic time. I didn't realize that my words could be interpreted in the manner which they were. People that knw me would tell u 1st hand I'm a very spiritual person and believe that everything, even disasters happen 4 a reason and that God will shouldn't be questioned but this is a very sensitive subject at a very tragic time and I shouldn't even have given a reason for the choice of words I used."
Um, Cappie, nobody misinterpreted your words. You explicitly said that God was tired of the way Japan was treating their people and then made a completely illogical comment about Pearl Harbor.
“They did Pearl Harbor so you can’t expect anything else.” Cappie, we dropped atomic bombs on them after Pearl Harbor — that karmic debt has been paid off 100 times over with the damage we did.
Next time you decide to “comment” on the world at large, why don’t you not be so hateful and ignorant. Why don’t you try not to criticize a country who’s going through a tragedy on a scale that you can’t even begin to wrap your little head around.
