The Oklahoma high school basketball announcer who was caught on hot mic using the N-word has come forward and he’s blaming the incident on an illness.

On Friday afternoon, the announcer was busted calling players “f***ing n*****s” for kneeling during the national anthem before a game.

After not being initially named, the announcer, Matt Rowan, issued a press release in which he blames his diabetes for making him “disoriented” which led him to hurl racist slurs at the players.

Of course, people on the internet weren’t buying his “sugar spike” excuse.
