Philadelphia 76ers star J.J. Redick defended himself on Sunday after the emergence of a video in which he appeared to use a racial slur to address NBA fans in China.

費城76人隊球星Redick面對中國NBA球迷演講中使用了種族性侮辱語言,在該視頻流出后,周天他替自己辯護。

In an online video compilation of NBA players sending seasonal greetings to fans celebrating Chinese New Year, Redick appears to refer to "chink" fans.

在一次NBA球員的在線視頻匯編中,球員們向慶祝農歷新年的球迷們致以節日的問候,Redick似乎指的是“chink”“球迷。(而chink是對中國人的一種侮辱詞匯。)

I just want to wish all of the NBA chink fans in China, a very happy Chinese New Year, the 33-year-old says.

這名33歲的球員說:“我希望NBA的所有來自中國的chink球迷們過個開心的春節。”

Redick responded to the controversy on Twitter early Sunday, blaming a verbal slip for his use of the word.

周日早上,Redick在推特上回應了這個爭議,將他使用的這個詞歸咎為口誤。

Just saw a video that is being circulated of me wishing a happy new year to NBA fans in China, Redick wrote.

Redick寫道:“我剛看了一個直播視頻是關于我向中國NBA球迷們祝福新年的。”

Clearly I was tongue tied, as the word I purportedly said is not in my vocabulary. I’m disappointed that anyone would think I would use that word.I love and respect our friends in China."

“很明顯我這是舌頭打結出現的口誤,我能想到的詞匯無法表達出我本來想說的話。有人卻認為我說了那個詞,我對此十分失望。”“我熱愛并尊重我們的中國朋友們。”

Redick joined the 76ers this season, the latest stop on a career that has included previous spells with the Orlando Magic, Milwaukee Bucks and Los Angeles Clippers.

雷迪克本賽季加入了76人隊,職業生涯的最新一站,之前一段是在奧蘭多魔術隊,密爾沃基雄鹿隊和洛杉磯快船隊。
