This FOX Sports Reporter Talked S**t About Mexicans On A Live Stream

“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:

Watch Selena Gomez Open Up About Friend Who Was Killed In Orlando

At Selena Gomez’s recent Miami concert she gave a heart-wrenching tribute to Christina Grimmie, who was tragically shot by a crazed fan last Friday. Christina was Selena’s friend and opening act in her We Own The Night tour. The two had been friends since the age of 14 when Selena’s step-father became Grimmie’s manager.

Selena began the tribute by saying a few words about her late friend, “And one thing about Christina and her family, is that she holds her faith so closely to her. It’s not about her religion, and it’s not about good deeds. It’s just that she had faith. And I don’t really understand how this happened, but I would like to dedicate this next song to her.”

Selena sang the song “Transformation” before breaking down and mouthing the words “I’m sorry.” We’ve never seen Selena so heartbroken, even in the Bieber days.

The attack on Christina happened just before the largest mass shooting in US  history, which also took place in Orlando, Flo. Florida is currently under fire, receiving serious criticism of their lax gun laws.
