[84 PHOTOS] Greece’s Voula Papachristou Ousted from Olympics for Racist Tweet

It’s a shame that an athlete like Voula Papachristou could be as racist as she is hot. The Greek Triple-Jumper was suspended from her country’s Olympic squad after she tweeted, “With so many Africans in Greece… At least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat home made food!!!” The tweet has since been removed from her timeline, and she’s issued a lengthy apology on both Facebook and Twitter.

Apparently, there’s been a small outbreak of West Nile virus in Athens recently, which might have spurred her to make the tasteless joke. While it’s pretty disappointing that it takes something like this to get Voula some attention, it’s probably fair to say that she’s learned her lesson. Maybe she’ll start doing more modeling shoots in an attempt to completely reinvent herself. She should still be in demand–and check out these hot Facebook photos to see what I mean.

      She isn't a racist. This is idiotic PC at it's worst.

      Its a knee jerk, over reaction. I think it was clearly said, in an effort to be funny. At the very least, they owe it to her, given her hard work getting here, to investigate her past record…….does it show a predilection toward racially slurs. Have there been any past overtly mean racial comments? Just because a remark mentions race, it doesn't mean the commenter is racist.

    7. Thomas says:

      It's only "racist" when a European white says it or does it.

      China is only for Chinese
      Africa is only for Africans
      India is only for Indians

      It's only "racist" when we say Greece is for Greeks or Britain is for Brits.

      anti-Racism = anti-White

        this whole comment is retarded.

      sorry, that wasn't racist. not even a little bit. If it is, then calling it west nile virus is racist. it is what it is and i wish all these pc wankers would just stfu.

    9. fischdog says:

      She's a racist cunt.

      There is definite hate in her heart. Is there hate in your heart too? Not cool.

      Shut your mouth dumb cunt..eat a sandwich!

      Leftist scum strike again.

    11. John says:

      Too bad being white means there is already a stigma of racism towards a colored person.

      Her statement was not made with Africa as a country in mind, it was made with African people of color in mind, who PORTRAY the effects of tragic diseases in Africa.

      Her statement is pure bias racism for belittling African black people.

      Anyone stupid enough to not keep that under your tounge, let alone around a small group of friends deserves to be banned for stupidity anyway.

      Live and learn, shes not too old anyway, better luck in 4 years.

      No, I am not black, I am White.

        and you're a moron. At least we Greeks have freedom of speech, unlike you assholes who live in a secret dictatorship.
        I've had enough of this fascist attitude that you fucking westerners spout all the time.

    12. SN12 says:

      Not racist. Plus she's banging hot, if that isn't enough to keep her in the olympics, i don't know what is. So she made a dumb joke about the west nile virus. Big whoop.

    13. Zoetmelk says:

      I am an African of Anglo-Saxon roots and find alot of hypocrisy and double standards in this racism issue….where I live black on white victim racism is thought of as cool and even encouraged by the powers that be but receives very little attention…if it were the reverse the whole world would hear of it.

    14. Meh says:

      If a white south african said it, would it be racist too? Gimmie a break. I am growing tired of every white person being acccused of racism if they even disagree with a person of (Darker) color. Well actually this whole anti-white racist finger pointing will backfire when the white community decides to not take it anymore and do something about it. They might actually become racist after being falsy accused of it for so long.

    15. […] Greek triple-jumper Voula Papachristou, only to learn that she had been removed from the Greek team for sending out a racist tweet. She afterwards apologized to everyone for the mistake. Hey at least people can learn from her […]

      John…. John, John, John…. Africa is not a country.

        Your website is very chatty. It will be useful for all of us. You have done a work. I will come here again to inspect new updates. Thanks for posting.

      2. jewelrystand says:

        This is really a good website. I will keep attention this page.

    17. mintrubber says:

      She was joking that African mosquitoes will get to drink African blood.
      It would be like saying American mosquitoes might get American food, in a similar setting.
      Or that Asian ones will get Asian food.

      Why is it racist again?

        This is really a good website. I will keep attention this page.

      2. daryl says:

        It dosen't matter if she was joking.How would you feel if i a black guy made a racist comment about you whites.

    18. shakingmyheadstill says:

      Africa is not a race of people, nor is it a country. Me being black, would've probably said the same thing at the African market the sometimes have here if WEST NILE virus was where people who could have been near the WEST NILE were. Like bird flu had it's jokes I'm sure, just no one was on twitter, or an Olympian representing their nation at the WORLD'S biggest stage. Insensitive, maybe, racist no, funny…lil bit. sexy 2 scoops!
