Discussing the Borges situation Friday on the WEEI radio show he co-hosts with Glenn Ordway and Lou Merloni, Fauria decided that it would be amusing to read the text messages sent to Borges from Fake Don Yee with a stereotypical Asian accent, which is horribly racist.
Fauria chose to take the role of Yee for the skit, and he used a racist/stereotypical Asian voice and tones when playing the role of the agent (audio can be heard at Deadspin).
"I have also reached out to Don directly to personally apologize", Fauria added. Fauria and his co-hosts chose to do a dramatic reading of the texts on their program.
"According to sources close to the league's Most Valuable Player, Brady is ready to sit out all of this year's offseason organized team activities unless he receives a contract extension that carries with it up-front money similar to what his former protege, Jimmy Garoppolo, will receive from the San Francisco 49ers".
Everton Contemplate Swoop for Shakhtar Boss Paulo Fonseca to Replace Sam Allardyce
Everton had been strongly linked with two manager candidates before Sam Allardyce was appointed to save the club from the horror the 2017-18 season was turning into.
Christian Fauria of the New England Patriots looks on against the New Orleans Saints at Gillette Stadium on November 20, 2005, in Foxborough, Massachusetts. He is of Chinese descent, but he was born in Sacramento, Calif., and does not speak with any distinct accent. For me, I don't know why, Don Yee sounds like an Asian guy, ' Fauria said on-air Friday, according to Deadspin.
Fauria, who played for the Seahawks for seven seasons, the Patriots for four and the Redskins and Panthers for one each, expressed regret that's typical in situations like this.
Don Yee does not have an Asian accent. "I have been disciplined by WEEI management and I fully support their decision".
He also posted an apology on Twitter to both Yee and his audience for the "regrettable" stunt. "We do not support or condone Christian's comments, and we have suspended him for five days effective immediately".
Last week, WEEI suspended host Alex Reimer indefinitely for calling Brady's five-year-old daughter "an annoying little pissant' after watching her appearance in Brady's documentary series "Tom vs. Time".
