Former SC GOP Exec Director Fires Off Racially-Charged Tweets During The Super Bowl

Fmr. SC GOP Exec Fires Off Racially-Charged Tweets During Super Bowl

During last night’s Super Bowl, former South Carolina GOP executive director Todd Kincannon sent out a flurry of racially-charged tweets, stirring controversy among social media users.

Kincannon’s tweets largely involved “jokes” about Trayvon Martin, dick-sucking, Hurricane Katrina, and black people.

To wit:

After receiving much criticism for his Trayvon Martin remark, Kincannon dug in deeper, thrice more invoking the shooting victim’s name as a punchline:

And, given the mid-game blackout, Kincannon took the opportunity to make a “joke” about the arena and its use as shelter for the “poors” among New Orleans’ majority black population during Hurricane Katrina:

The tweets sent off a flurry of negative responses, which was met with the legal analyst doubling down on his remarks, laughing off criticism, and re-tweeting dozens of supportive responses.


UPDATE: This post mistakenly referred to Kincannon as a “current legal analyst for Fox’s Good Day Columbia.” However, WACH’s news director informs us that despite appearing on the network occasionally, Kincannon does not work with the network in any official capacity. We have corrected this.
