The Denver Post found itself embroiled in controversy this weekend after one its reporters, Terry Frei, tweeted out insensitive comments about Indy 500 winner Takuma Sato, who became the first Japanese racer to ever win the annual event in its 101st running. He has since deleted the tweet, but, of course, plenty of folks took screenshots of it for posterity’s sake because it was especially awful.

The backlash was immediate and Monday the paper announced that Frei was no longer employed there.
