The media outlet OutKick reached out to Deadspin about its article that falsely accused a 9-year-old boy of wearing blackface and culturally appropriating a Native American headdress.
Deadspin is accused of using a deceptive photo and has not corrected the story.
“We questioned why Deadspin used a deceptive photo that showed only the side of the kid’s face painted black,” Outkick explained. (Trending: Another Major Company Goes Woke And Goes Broke)
Ha! This is incredible.

“We asked the outlet why it won’t correct or update the story with accurate information, such as the photo showing the fan wearing red and black Chiefs’ face paint instead of blackface.”
“And we questioned why the site has not acknowledged that the kid, whom the author accused of culturally appropriating a Native American headdress, is actually Native American.”

OutKick questioned Deadspin’s editor and CEO, and received a response from senior writer Julie DiCaro, who called the inquiry sexist.
OutKick emphasized that the focus should be on the defamation of the child, not personal attacks.
Critics say Deadspin should be held accountable for the false accusations against the child.
