In a pattern all too familiar, the person calling out others has her own offense Tweets. Alexi McCammond, a reporter covering the presidential race for Axios, called out Charles Barkley for a vulgar and offensive remark. Barkley apologized.
Ms. McCammond has her own history of racist tweets that she should apologize for as well.
(Update: After publication Ms. McCammond deleted her tweets.)
In one Tweet McCammond said she wanted to learn how to avoid “swollen Asian eyes.”
now googling how to not wake up with swollen, asian eyes…

Now I don’t find these Tweets offensive, although they are racist and rely on racial stereotypes.
Outdone by Asian #whatsnew

Being upset as a TA isn’t anything newsworthy, although referencing his Asian ethnicity seems problematic.

Ms. McCammond has apologized for her history of racist Tweets.
Today I was reminded of some past insensitive tweets, and I am deeply sorry to anyone I offended. I have since deleted those tweets as they do not reflect my views or who I am today.
