Deadspin targets young Kansas City Chiefs fan, falsely accuses him of wearing 'black face'

Woke sports outlet Deadspin achieved a new low today.


Woke sports outlet Deadspin achieved a new low today, publishing an article entitled "The NFL needs to speak out against the Kansas City Chiefs fan in Black face, Native headdress" that targets what appears to be an underage fan. The young person's crime was dressing up in gear paying tribute to the Kansas City Chiefs at a recent football game.

At the time of publication, the identity and exact age of the young person is not known. However, Outkick is reporting that the child is only 5 years old.

"It takes a lot to disrespect two groups of people at once. But on Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas, a Kansas City Chiefs fan found a way to hate Black people and the Native Americans at the same time" Deadspin's article reads.

Deadspin then takes aim at the NFL, blaming the league for not changing the Chiefs name the same way the Washington Redskins became the Commanders. "The answers to all of those questions lead back to the NFL. While it isn’t the league’s responsibility to stop racism and hate from being taught in the home, they are a league that has relentlessly participated in prejudice. If the NFL had outlawed the chop at Chiefs games and been more aggressive in changing the team’s name, then we wouldn’t be here."

"This is what happens when you ban books, stand against Critical Race Theory, and try to erase centuries of hate. You give future generations the ammunition they need to evolve and recreate racism better than before" the article continued.

The hit piece's author, Carron J. Phillips, whose social media boasts of being an award-winning writer and Pulitzer nominee, faced backlash for targeting the young fan, but doubled down on his criticism. Many social media users pointed out that the young person was not in "black face" at all, but actually had his face painted red and black.

Phillips tweeted "For the idiots in my mentions who are treating this as some harmless act because the other side of his face was painted red, I could make the argument that it makes it even worse. Y’all are the ones who hate Mexicans but wear sombreros on Cinco."

Phillips disabled replies on his X post, as the people kept speaking out in defense of the kid.

TPM's own Libby Emmons weighed in, saying: "This man ruins the life of some poor kid for the crime of wearing face paint at a football game and he really thinks he’s the good guy."

Libs of TikTok let Phillips have it, posting "Why is @Deadspin @carronJphillips trying to ruin this little kid’s life? They’re accusing him of blackface but conveniently left out his full face which was painted for the game"

TPM's Savanah Hernandez teed off on Phillips, saying "I would expect nothing less from an 'award winning journalist' and 'Pulitzer Prize nominee'… Our society is so soft and coddled that a 12 year old with face paint on is enough to bring “men” like this to their knees. Pathetic"

In response to Phillips' point about "sombreros on Cinco" journalist Julio Rosas said "White people, mis compás: You have my permission to wear sombreros, wear ponchos, and drink tequila any day of the year, not just for Cinco de Mayo."

Phillips' other contributions to sports journalism include an article blaming the fact that Simone Biles isn't as popular as Taylor Swift on racism and another demanding that the Jacksonville Jaguars kneel during the national anthem this year.
