An 11-year-old boy's rendition of the national anthem at Game 3 of the NBA finals brought the usual appreciative applause Tuesday, but outside AT&T Center in San Antonio, his performance brought a darker reaction from some posters on social media -- and eventually an online backlash against their racist comments.
Here's a sampling of some of the unkind tweets that went flying around the Internet about Sebastien De La Cruz:
-- "Why they got a Mexican kid singing the national anthem -___-"from Daniel Gilmore.
-- "How you singing the national anthem looking like an illegal immigrant" from Andre Lacey, proud father and firefighter from Augusta, Georgia.
-- "Why is a foreigner singing the national anthem. I realize that's San Antonio but that still ain't Mexico" from Lewie Groh.
-- "Who let this illegal alien sing our national anthem?" from Matt Cyrus.
I wonder how many of these are Huddle posters...
