Bacsik's Twitter tirade -- which included rants about the NBA, commissioner David Stern, the Mavericks losing to the Spurs, his love of San Antonio, and how he was "twelve deep and a couple shots" as he expressed himself 140 characters at a time -- quickly made the rounds in the sports blogosphere (and the incriminating evidence was conveniently screen-captured by friend of Back Porch, Chris Littmann at the Sporting Blog).
His tweets are after the jump, along with more discussion as to whether he'll keep his job or move on to designing shoes for the All-White Basketball League.
Also, he doesn't seem to understand the fundamental stupidity of getting drunk (based on the "12 deep" tweet), hopping on Twitter, and making reprehensible remarks about people when you're a public figure paid to talk about sports.
Were his comments more nuanced (as opposed to blatantly crude, inappropriate and bigoted), it might be worth pointing out that Bacsik is, in theory, threatening to blow up the NBA offices in New York City.
And while that threat could just be hyperbole, the top tweet in the screen capture above sure doesn't sound like it. And it's the type of public statement that should have Sports Radio 1310 passing out a pink slip soon.
UPDATE: Bacsik sends along the following tweet Monday afternoon: "I'm sorry for my horribly insensitive tweet last night about the Hispanic comm. in San Antonio. I apologize and I hope u can forgive me."
UPDATE NO. 2: Radio station KTCK has suspended Bacsik for his comments on Twitter. The length of the suspension was not revealed. KTCK and Cumulus Market Manager Dan Bennett offered the following: "Mike Bacsik's comments were unacceptable and offensive, and are inconsistent with the core values of KTCK and Cumulus. We have made the decision to suspend Mr. Bacsik with the hope that he will take this time to consider the insensitive and hurtful nature of his comments."
