As well as Twitter-ing my angry. @Engeljen. Follow me.
What I also did was obey The Golden Rules of social media: Do not drunk Tweet. Definitely, do not Tweet drunk and angry. And do not insult racial and ethnic groups.
Obviously, this page was removed from Ticket personality Mike Bacsik’s playbook.
His Twitter feed was laced with inappropriate sexual overtures regarding NBA commish David Stern, plans to go postal if diagnosed with cancer and, his lowest Tweet:
“Congrats to all the dirty Mexicans in San Antonio”.
Yikes. Inappropriate much? In fairness, he admitted being 12 beers and many shots into his game-watching, which does not excuse him. My Ticket friends say to expect news of a suspension today.
I watched his Twitter meltdown live, but his inflammatory had been scrubbed from cyberspace when I checked back this a.m. In its place was an apology.
It should be accepted. We all screw up.
It might be wise, though, if The Ticket attached a Breathalyzer to his computer.
NOTICE FROM 1310 THE TICKET:
Radio station KTCK in Dallas has suspended the employment of KTCK producer, talk host and former major league pitcher Mike Bacsik in response to comments he made on his personal Twitter account following San Antonio’s win over Dallas last night. With regard to the suspension, KTCK and Cumulus Market Manager Dan Bennett said, “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.”
I'm sorry for my horribly insensitive tweet last night about the Hispanic community in San Antonio. I have embarrassed myself, my family, friends, The Ticket, and my host Norm Hitzges. I am deeply sorry and understand why so many people are upset. I am dealing with my actions by asking for forgiveness from my wife, kids, parents, The Ticket and Cumulus family, friends, and everybody who was and should have been offended by my tweets last night. Most importantly I am asking for forgiveness from my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have made a terrible mistake. I apologize and I hope you can forgive me.
