Parades with paper mache versions of the bride and groom followed by a procession of music and well-wishers is common in Mexico.

“I didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart.”

Emily Austen, a reporter for FOX Sports Florida and FOX Sports Sun, recently appeared in a Barstool Sports Facebook Live video (which has since been deleted) after she went a little off script. Okay, there likely wasn’t a script, since the show is just people hanging out on the couch talking sports. After calling Kevin Love a “little b*tch” several times, the 27-year-old reporter went after Mexicans. Yup. When the conversation turned to current events, the hosts talked about Mayte Lara Ibarra. Lara Ibarra is the undocumented Texas high school graduate who achieved a 4.5 GPA and revealed her immigration status via Twitter. Rather than marveling at a young woman’s ability to secure a scholarship to an Ivy League school through hard work, Austen said, “I didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart.” She then went into a few stereotypical jokes about Chinese men and the Jewish community. After the inevitable backlash, Austen issued an apology for her comments. As of now, it is unclear whether or not Austen is employed at FOX Sports. She still lists “FOX Sports/Florida & Sun” on her Twitter bio. FOX released a very vague statement about her future with the company.

Hey, Emily Austen, here are a few more “smart” undocumented Mexican-Americans you should get to know. And they’re all valedictorians:

Angelica HernándezArizona State University valedictorian, 2011

Brizzia and Maria Munoz Robles (Identical twins) – Douglas High School co-valedictorians, 2014

Mayte Lara IbarraDavid Crockett High School valedictorian, 2016

Larissa MartinezMcKinney Boyd High School valedictorian, 2016

Diana Bernal – Ypsilanti STEMM Middle College valedictorian, 2016
