    To be fair, though, it weren't a bad gag.

    She got booted because Greece is depending on private Corporations paying for their teams and were afraid her comments would be bad for business.

    While gearing up for her first Olympic games on Sunday, Papachristou commented on the reported influx of West Nile mosquitos in Athens. She tweeted in Greek, "With so many Africans in Greece, the West Nile mosquitoes will be getting home food!!!" Her tweet provoked a bevy of ill responses, and many Greeks called for her dismissal from the Olympic team.

    Anyone in public eye that has a twitter or FB acct, and is using their real identity, is an idiot.

    That being said... way too harsh, but what do I care? The Olympics are a PC nightmare... screw em.
