Ellen DeGeneres’ Comment about U.S vs Ghana Match: Harmless or Derogatory?

Everyone is talking about the U.S vs Ghana world cup match that took place yesterday.

The U.S team scored the first goal 32 seconds into the game, and eventually won the match 2-1.

Ellen Degeneres tweeted this comment: “Go USA! Fastest goal in U.S World Cup History in the #USAvsGhana game. 32 seconds! It took me longer to look up where Ghana is.”

The tweet has since been deleted from her page, however, International Business Times UK reported the story when she first tweeted.
