Oak Lawn Coach & President of Youth Baseball Organization John Kelly benched for calling Crackhead Whitney Houston a "Nigger" on FaceBook
An Oak Lawn man was suspended Monday as president of a youth baseball organization after using the “n”-word in a posting about the death of singer Whitney Houston on his Facebook page.
John Kelly said Wednesday that his life has been “ruined” by the repercussions from the posting. He said he’s not a racist and did not realize he had posted the word. His comment was reposted to the Westside Baseball of Oak Lawn Facebook page.
His Facebook post read, in part, “I’m so sick of reading about this dumb stupid Nigger Whitney Houston.”
“I didn’t even realize I put it in until after I sent it,” he said.
