Just a quick follow up to the story we had last week about the fan banned from NBA arenas for calling Dikembe Mutombo a monkey. Hamzehloui says that the entire incident was blown out of proportion because he chose the wrong word.
I just used a poor choice of words. If I said he looked like a chimpanzee or like a gorilla, none of this happens.
Cause uh… you know.. there’s no racial undertones to calling someone a gorilla or a chimpanzee.
