Prominent Hong Kong freedom activist Joshua Wong on Friday branded “a really big slap in the face” an email from ESPN NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski to Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), that read simply, “Fuck you.”
Hawley published the email response, which appeared to be hastily sent from Wojnarowski’s iPhone, on Friday. The insult was a response to a standard press email from Hawley’s office questioning the NBA’s relationship with China — a regime that has imprisoned millions in concentration camps and recently passed a law effectively ending free speech in Hong Kong.
“For those of us fighting for our very lives against Chinese repression ON A DAILY BASIS, this is a really big slap in the face,” Wong posted on Twitter, calling the email “just insane!”
