“Build the Wall” NBA Jersey Triggers Snowflake Outrage
Two Sacramento Kings fans outraged liberal snowflakes after they wore “build the wall” and “Trump” NBA jerseys at last week’s game against the Miami Heat.
Daniel Goldsmith who wore the “build the wall” jersey told the Sacramento Bee that he wore the shirt as a joke and that he doesn’t “have enough knowledge about politics to have any sort of opinion.”
“At the venue nobody really said anything except smiles and laughs, they thought it was funny,” Goldsmith told the Bee. “Nobody really had any opinions until the next day when I saw my phone and it was blowing up on Twitter.”
Outrage at the men followed in social media comments. Some users called it offensive to Kings fans who were trying to enjoy the game, claiming “Build the Wall” is an inherently racist phrase, while others defended the jerseys as expressions of free speech and said they did not do any harm.
Popular Sacramento radio sports commentator David Weiglein, also known as Carmichael Dave, in several tweets referred to the two fans as “clowns.”
One individual wrote on Twitter, “This is NOT Sacramento. This is not what my city stands for or what we as fans stand for. This is pure hate. And it’s disgusting.”
Another wrote, “Makes me want to puke.”
