Default Nate Diaz suspended over controversial tweet

http://www.mmafighting.com/2013/5/16...oversial-tweet

Quote:
Nate Diaz has been been suspended by the UFC after using a gay slur in a tweet Thursday afternoon.

"We are very disappointed by Nate Diazís comments, which are in no way reflective of our organization. Nate is currently suspended pending internal investigation and we will provide further comment once the matter has been decided," the UFC said in a statement.



Diaz tweeted the above statement in his defense of Pat Healy, who was stripped of his bonus money after a positive marijuana test at UFC 159. The "guy who took the money" is believed to be Bryan Caraway, who was recently awarded the submission of the night bonus.

Diaz's troubles could be much more than a suspension.

"We are going to fine, suspend or cut him. One or two of those three will happen," UFC president Dana White told MMA Fighting's Dave Meltzer.

White also told Meltzer the UFC would ultimately decide Diaz's punishment when he returns from Germany on Friday morning.
People don't seem to learn from others mistakes.

That's certainly not the case. Many comedians have already pointed it out, but if you're comparing the evil of two words & you can't say one of the words: that's obviously the worse word!

It's about "midget" and not "faggot", but the principle still applies:


There are lots of words that are offensive to a lot of different people, but I'm sick & tired of people trying to claim that their word is "as bad as the 'N' word". No, it's not. Your "plight" is no where near that bad. Get over yourself.
