Sergio Garcia apologizes for “fried chicken” comment directed towards Tiger Woods
Sergio Garcia has found himself in a bit of hot water, following an off-hand, racist comment that was directed towards fellow PGA star, Tiger Woods.
Sergio was asked while appearing at a European Tour event, if he’d have dinner with Tiger Woods at the upcoming U.S. Open. Sergio responded, “We’ll have him round every night…we will serve fried chicken.”
Tiger took to Twitter to respond to the comments saying, “The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate…The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate…”
What do you think? Were Sergio’s comments racist?
