NBA player, Patty Mills, of the San Antonio Spurs was the victim of some hateful and racist taunts while playing against the Cleveland Cavaliers. Not only did Mills receive racist taunts from a Donald Trump supporter but the 29 year old biracial Australian was also mistaken for a Jamaican.

“Hey, Jamaican dog. They want their bobsledder back,” the fan heckled Mills. “Hey Mills, Jamaica just called; they want their bobsledder back,” he continued.

Mills ignored the fan while he was on the court but after the game he took to twitter to address the shituation.
“I am a proud islander. Like my Jamaican brothers, me and my family in the islands of the Torres Strait have experienced racial slurs for decades.
