Garofalo wrote:

  Many replied to the tweet, saying that it was blatantly racist.





Garofalo responded to the racism allegations to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, saying that he was, “talking about NBA’s high arrest rate and that they are the only major pro league that testing positive for marijuana is not a substance abuse violation.”

Garofalo has a history of anti-NBA tweets.
