Aw got it, I know what you meant (my bad).
My example, the Miami Heat (the team) promoted the game by passing out 8,000 fortune cookies. That would be out of line for the organization.
I still believe targeting a player's shooting performance by the PA announcer (or whoever is working the screen) is not out of line. It's just a way to pump up the fans. There were plenty of chants to pump up the crowd; Pistons' announcer used chant "Out of bounds, Detroit basketball" in a key turnover, or Lakers' announcer plays "Move bitch, get out the way" whenever their opponent's shot is blocked. I suppose we could have two difference opinions on this topic.
Woooooow. That is beyond **** up, and the Miami Heat as an organization should be ashamed of themselves for that. That is truly disgusting.
how is that messed up?
that's like if americans play the Toronto Raptors, and they pass out mcdonalds to everyone. who cares? whats the offense here
"here's a symbol of american food, haha, because you're american!"
i don't see the offense. omgawd they passed out mcdonalds burgers!! lol at the fake outrage over nothing
(yes im aware fortune cookies were invented by chinese americans, and not in china)
This one seems like an odd one to have to explain. They were leaning into idiotic cultural stereotypes in, if im understanding it right, was a deliberate attempt to heckle him for being Chinese. Your McDonalds comparison is... not great... especially considering that McDonalds is eaten everywhere on the planet. This would be more like when black players join a Chinese team, everyone the crowd is handed out pieces of fried chicken.
