Remember the story where some lunatic woke writer at “sports” outlet Deadspin smeared a nine-year-old boy for allegedly wearing blackface and a native headdress to a football game in November, which of course to them indicated he was a virulent racist? 

It turns out the whole premise was BS, and the kid’s face was painted with colors that the Kansas City Chiefs have used in logos and merchandising. Not only that, the boy turned out to be Native American, and was proudly wearing his headdress to honor that heritage.

Can you say, “egg on the face?”

But guess who got the last laugh? The nine-year-old, Holden Armenta. He is at the Super Bowl as of this writing and showed up proudly wearing his Native American headdress and yellow, white, and red paint across his face.

In your face, Deadspin:

The whole saga reeks of woke journalism where activists posing as reporters don’t care about the facts, they just want something to fit their narrative. We saw it with Kyle Rittenhouse, and we saw it with the “Covington Kid,” Nick Sandmann.

It’s a disgrace to journalism, and sadly, it’s not all that uncommon these days:

The 9-year-old boy was at the center of a firestorm during the regular season when he was seen wearing black paint across half of his face and a headdress as the Chiefs took on the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium. Deadspin wrote an article that accused the boy of blackface and offending Native American culture.

But his face was painted black on one side and red on the other for the Chiefs colors, and the boy’s grandfather is reportedly on the board of the Chumash Tribe in California.

Deadspin edited the story to remove the photo at the top that featured the boy and said they “regret any suggestion that we were attacking” Holden.

Armenta’s parents filed suit against Deadspin, and they wrote in their complaint:

“H.A. did not wear a costume headdress because he was ‘taught hate at home’ — he wore it because he loves the Kansas City Chiefs football team and because he loves his Native American heritage.”

I hope Armenta is enjoying the game, even though his Chiefs are currently trailing San Francisco 10-3 at halftime. 

And Deadspin, I hope you’re enjoying the taste of crow.
