Slammed

“Slammed as racist”?

If only.

I would have said it was more “cringed over” or “blushed at” than “slammed”, but that’s how the rhetoric of this sort of thing plays out.

The reaction to casual racism has to be exaggerated. That way, the X% of Australians who think it’s all good clean fun can feel wonderfully aggrieved and wounded as the PC thought police stomp all over their simple pleasures.
