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.
