Triple jumper Voula Papachristou has been expelled from Greece’s Olympic team for her comments on Twitter mocking African immigrants — The 23-year-old Papachristou had tweeted that “with so many Africans in Greece, at least the mosquitoes of West Nile will eat homemade food” Of course she showed remorse with an apology. “I ask forgiveness from all my friends and fellow athletes if I embarrassed them,” she said. “Also from all those who supported me. My dreams were the Games. All these years I’ve tried for those specific three days that I would be in London” Some people still don’t understand the whole Tweeting thing. Bonehead move. -TO
