Racist Tweets After U.S. Soccer Victory Over Japan: “Japs” & “Pearl Harbor” Trending
If you thought that kind of behavior was limited to the frustration of defeat, think again. America beat Japan 2-1 last night at the Olympics, and some fans were as racist and hateful in victory as they were in defeat. As noted by Fox News, International Business Times, and SB Nation, the same trends emerged. There were many tweets celebrating the defeat of the “Japs” as payback for “Pearl Habor.” Numerous users also gloated about the victory by comparing it to the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Here’s a sample of American-styled blind patriotism and disgusting pro-war mindsets. Because, obviously, celebrating sports with references to nuking the life out of a country is a great thing to do.
