Hornets part ways with radio announcer after racial slur on Twitter



September 3, 2020


The Charlotte Hornets said Thursday that radio announcer John Focke will not return after he used a racial slur in a tweet two weeks ago.

Focke was suspended indefinitely on Aug. 18 after tweeting out the “N word” the night before. He was let go for violating the team’s social media policy.

“Since this is a personnel matter, the organization will not comment any further. The Hornets thank John for all of his efforts during the 2019-20 season,” the team said in a statement.
