Wash. State Rep faces backlash after inappropriate tweet
Joe Fitzgibbon represents the 34th District covering West Seattle and Burien.
After the game he tweeted, “Losing a football game sucks. Losing to a desert racist wasteland sucks a lot.”
People responded on twitter calling Fitzgibbon “narrow-minded” and accusing him of giving Seahawks fans a bad rap.
Later Fitzgibbon tweeted this response, “Upset re hawks loss, and failure of smart immigration reform–shouldn’t have conflated the 2 though. happy holidays, better for both in ’14.”
Fitzgibbon deleted the original tweet.
