Ex-Pats TE Christian Fauria Suspended By Radio Station For Racially Mocking Tom Brady’s Agent Don Yee


Former Patriots TE and current Boston sports radio host Christian Fauria was suspended on Friday for making a racially insensitive remark about Tom Brady’s agent Don Yee.

During a segment on air, Fauria thought it would be funny to impersonate Yee using a stereotype Asian accent:

WEEI released this following statement:

The station also announced that they have suspended Fauria for five days.

Fauria also took to Twitter to apologize for his “horrible attempt at humor” and supports the station’s decision to discipline him:

Yee is of Chinese descent but was born in Sacramento, California. He representation of athletes include Patriots QB Tom Brady and WR Julian Edelman.

The radio segment stemmed from a hoax report that surfaced on the Boston Globe that Pats QB Tom Brady was ready to hold out unless the team didn’t compensate him in the manner similar to Yee’s other agent Jimmy Garoppolo was compensated by the 49ers.
