Fried Chicken Remark
Garcia, who took issue with Woods for what he viewed as a breach of golf course etiquette during the third round of The Players Championship two weeks ago, was asked in jest at a European Tour function if he would be inviting Woods to dinner during next month's U.S. Open. Sergio Garcia was in a joking mood at the European Tour awards dinner Tuesday night in England, where he shared the stage with Luke Donald and Nicolas Colsaerts, then later made a controversial remark about Tiger Woods. "We'll have him round every night,'' Garcia said, according to multiple media reports. "We will serve fried chicken.''
The guy is a Spaniard, I am not sure he gets the implication of fried chicken racist context from a US prospective.
How is fried chicken a racist thing? Man white people eat the yard bird too you know.
ETA: Tiger's response: Tiger Speaks
Woods responded on Twitter to Garcia’s initial statement of apology. ”The comment that was made wasn’t silly. It was wrong, hurtful and clearly inappropriate,” he said in a series of tweets. “I’m confident that there is real regret that the remark was made."
