Late Tuesday afternoon, reporter Michael Silver broke a story which accuses Houston Texans Chairman Cal McNair of having used a racial slur in reference to the coronavirus last spring. As expected, the cancel culture mob caught wind of the news, dropped what they were doing and fantasized about another opportunity to play the victim.
The offensive “racial slur” McNair used was — HORROR OF HORRORS! — “China virus.”
EXCLUSIVE from @mikesilver —
Texans chairman Cal McNair used an anti-Asian slur at a team golf event that caused many in the audience to gasp.

According to Silver, who coincidentally dropped this “exclusive” story hours after announcing he had left NFL Network and started working for Bally Sports, McNair told a crowd of more than 100 at a Texans charity golf outing: “I’m sorry that we couldn’t get together last year because of the China Virus.”
McNair’s comment reportedly caused some attendees and employees to express concern.
“Everyone gasped,” one witness said, according to Silver’s report, “especially the people directly across from him. He and Hannah seemed to think it was hilarious. It was dead silent.”
Because so many deemed it an insensitive racial slur, McNair had to follow the first prescribed step of cancel culture 101: issue a public apology.
“My comments at the event last May included an inappropriate choice of words,” said McNair in a statement to Bally Sports. “I immediately apologized to people who approached me then, and I apologize again now. I know how important it is to choose my words carefully. I would never want to offend anyone.”
While the COVID comment is unlikely to cancel Cal, he sure did give everyone a fright this Halloween week!
Unless he’s hiding decades-old emails with the Washington Football Team front office though, the factual comment about COVID is unlikely to cancel Cal.

it is the china virus, because, wait for it, it came from….China.
It is called the China Virus because it came from China. China is a country and not a race. If it is, why is there African Sleeping Sickness, Lyme Disease, Spanish Flu, and MERS (Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome).
It is China virus and the people gasping are pussy willows.
The proper name is the China/Gates/Fauci/Facebook/DNC Wuhan bio warfare lab virus.
Don’t apologize to these clowns. It wasn’t a slur so there is nothing to apologize for.
That McNair backtracked and humbly apologized (for nothing) so quickly is ONE of the many reasons that the Woke Cancel Culture terrorists keep “winning”.
It’s way beyond time to draw a line in the sand and say “THAT’S BS”.
Everyone gasped bull shit Mike Silver,and that he apologized is what is wrong in the country.
China could literally drop nukes on us and the Left would be offended if we referred to them as China Nukes!
Chinese checkers, Chinese food, Chinese fire drill. What’s the big deal?
I wonder if the movie ‘China Syndrome’ has been banned? My Lord the left needs to be put down, and people in power need to grow spines.
I thought it was agreed upon that it would be referred to as the “Kung Flu”.
Ah, are the leftist babies going to cry again?!
“Everyone gasped “ according to one witness. Right, unless it was a group of CCP officials I bet 3 or 4 “gasped” and most others thought nothing of it. These unattributed stories are usually lies.
Fucking chicoms a brutal regime that murders and enslaves its own people
He should not have apologized. That was a huge mistake. F these wokesters
The whole point of having fuck you money is to tell people to go fuck themselves. He went out like a bitch.
Guys it doesn’t stop until you tell them to GTFO
It’s really that simple. Address the liberals harshly or lose. Those are your options.
