Packers WR Devin Funchess Found Himself In Hot Water After Casually Using Asian Slur During Press Conference, Releases Apology

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Devin Funchess found himself in hot water after using an Asian slur during a press conference after the Packers night practice on Saturday night.

While speaking to reporters Funches was joking that he could tell which of them were smiling even with their facemasks on because their eyes appeared “chi–y.”

Funchess would later take to Twitter to release an apology for using the Asian slur during his press conference.

Packers GM Brian Gutekunst told the media that he addressed the situation with Funchess.
