Wash. State Rep faces backlash after inappropriate tweet
SEATTLE -- A Washington State Representative is under fire for not taking the Seahawks loss so well.
Joe Fitzgibbon represents the 34th District covering West Seattle and Burien.
After the game he tweeted, "Losing a football game sucks. Losing to a desert racist wasteland sucks a lot."
People responded on twitter calling Fitzgibbon "narrow-minded" and accusing him of giving Seahawks fans a bad rap.
Later Fitzgibbon tweeted this response, "Upset re hawks loss, and failure of smart immigration reform--shouldn't have conflated the 2 though. happy holidays, better for both in '14."
Fitzgibbon deleted the original tweet.
