Screenshots: The Journalist Who Falsely Accused a Child of ‘Blackface’ And Racism Has His Old Tweets Resurfaced, and Hoo Boy
Sports news site Deadspin smeared an innocent child who attended Sunday’s Kansas City vs Las Vegas game by posting a deceptive photo of only one side of his face.
The little boy, who looks to be only 10 years old, attended a Kansas City Chiefs game with the team’s colors – black and red – painted on his face.
This will be the easiest defamation case in American history. Deadspin is in real trouble. This could end them.
Deadspin writer Carron Phillips went after the innocent child and accused him of ‘hating’ black people and Native Americans at the same time.
“It takes a lot to disrespect two groups of people at once. But on Sunday afternoon in Las Vegas, a Kansas City Chiefs fan found a way to hate Black people and the Native Americans at the same time.” Carron Phillips wrote.
As expected, the author of the piece doubled down, eliminating any excuse that he had simply made a mistake.
For the idiots in my mentions who are treating this as some harmless act because the other side of his face was painted red, I could make the argument that it makes it even worse.

So who exactly is Carron J. Phillips? Some of his resurfaced tweets are providing an answer to that question.
There’s a word for someone who claims other people are doing something they themselves are guilty of. It’s called projection. While the kid wearing facepaint at an NFL game wasn’t actually doing anything racist, Phillips’ own words smack of it. How else can you describe someone who sees white people on the street and thinks it’s “concerning.”
