Max Bretos, an anchor for ESPN, has been suspended following the uproar over his insensitive comments about Jeremy Lin's 7-game winning streak coming to an end. However, Bretos explained that his wife is Asian and he would "never intentionally say anything to disrespect her and that community."

Bretos explained via Twitter that the title was "Not done with any racial reference. Despite intention, phrase was inappropriate in this context."

The writer for ESPN, who used the same phrase in a headline on ESPN's mobile site was fired, while Bretos was given a 30 day suspension.
