This tidbit showed on the BBC website, an announcer at a HS girls basketball game spouting off about some players’ kneeling. The article alleges that the announcer used a racist slur and profanity to decry the kneeling players, which were caught on live stream. The announcer blamed his outburst on blood sugar spikes from his Type 1 diabetes.
The episode and attitude are objectionable enough, but to blame it on spiking sugar? It feels like there’s enough misinformation out there and this only adds to it. I know one can become combative if their sugar is low – but when spiking??
