In a world where social justice warriors reign supreme, even the slightest offense can lead to outrage and protests. That’s exactly what happened when President Joe Biden mispronounced a word related to Boston Celtics player Jayson Tatum.
During a recent press conference, President Biden referred to Tatum as “Jaylen”, which had one social justice advocate up in arms. “This is unacceptable,” said Jennifer Smith, a self-proclaimed activist. “The President should know better. He needs to apologize to Jayson and the entire Celtics organization.”
Smith went on to organize a protest outside of the White House, with signs reading “Mispronunciation is microaggression” and “Words matter, Mr. President.”
But the outrage didn’t stop there. Another social justice warrior took offense to a recent interview with Celtics player Jaylen Brown, where he gave an honest assessment of his Game 7 performance. Brown, who struggled in the game, said he was disappointed in himself and felt like he let his team down.
“This is not okay,” said Samantha James, another activist. “Jaylen is being too hard on himself. He needs to understand that his performance is a result of systemic oppression in the NBA. The league is biased against players of color, and it’s not fair to hold Jaylen to the same standards as his white teammates.”
James went on to organize a boycott of the Celtics, calling for fans to stop supporting the team until they address the systemic oppression in the league.
It’s a strange world we live in, where mispronunciations and personal accountability are grounds for outrage. But for these social justice warriors, nothing is too small to protest.
