After the USA scored 32 seconds into their World Cup game against Ghana last night, US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres must have thought she was being funny when she tweeted, “Go USA! Fastest goal in U.S World Cup History in the #USAvsGhana game. 32 seconds! It took me longer to look up where Ghana is.”
She must have also forgotten how quick social media is because minutes after she sent out the tweet the backlash she received from Africans and non Africans made the 56 year old comedian delete the offensive tweet. However she has not apologized for her insensitive tweet.
