Washington Post Columnist Mike Wise Slams Indiana Pacers For Playing Tyga, Game Music In Locker Room

Sports writer Mike Wise took to Twitter to criticize the music that the Indiana Pacers played in their locker room before a playoff game against the Washington Wizards.

Earlier this week, popular Washington Post sports columnist and feature writer Tweeted his disapproval of the music played in the Indiana Pacers locker-room leading up to a playoff game against the Washington Wizards. Criticizing Tyga and Game directly for what he seems to have considered overly vulgar lyrics, Wise went on to mock some users for correcting his inaccurate referencing of the rappers.



Following Wise’s Tweets, many users responded negatively with criticism for his comments. Wise himself also posted an article he wrote last November regarding the use of the n-word.

“The N-word is filth; it’s disrespectful, confusing and uplifts no one,” he wrote in November. “I know of no other minority in the world co-opting a dehumanizing, racial slur used by its oppressor...Yet I’m told, ‘You don’t get it; you’re white.’

No. That doesn’t work for me. I deserve a seat at this table. This is about the world my 3-year-old is going to live in.”



Complex also reported on the event.
