Uh oh, what did Salon do now? Before we answer that, though, let‚Äôs have a look at some of Salon‚Äôs other tweets from earlier today to get an idea of the online magazine‚Äôs standard fare.
Race is obviously a big deal at Salon, but not a big enough of a deal to check before publishing. In a review of HBO‚Äôs ‚ÄúSilicon Valley,‚ÄĚ Salon noted that star Kumail¬†Nanjiani, a¬†Pakistani-American stand-up comedian¬†and¬†actor, ‚Äúis in fact‚ÄĚ a regular on CBS‚Äôs ‚ÄúThe Big Bang Theory.‚ÄĚ That would in fact be¬†Kunal Nayyar, a British-Indian actor.
Oops indeed. Comedian Patton Oswalt tried to offer a path out of the mess.
We‚Äôre sure they‚Äôre working on the apology right now.
