Washington state Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon does not like to see his Seattle Seahawks lose.
Taking to his Twitter account after the Seahawks’ defeat to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, Fitzgibbon tweeted, “Losing a football game sucks. Losing to a desert racist wasteland sucks a lot.”
Fitzgibbon deleted the tweet, but not before the Associated Press’ Mike Baker got a screen-grab and tweeted it on his own:

Fitzgibbon would ultimately tell Baker in an interview that he called Arizona racist because of the state’s controversial law requiring police officers to ask suspects about their immigration status. The law, Fitzgibbon told Baker, amounted to racial profiling. During his talk with Baker, Fitzgibbon also apologized for the tweet, describing it simply as an example of sports fan trash talk. “If folks are going to take that too seriously, then I’m sorry about that,” Fitzgibbon said.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
