Last week, ESPN announced it would simulcast ESPN Deportes on ESPN2 during Monday Night Football, meaning Spanish-speaking fans would have an easy way to watch Saints-Vikings and Chargers-Broncos on Monday.

Well the day has arrived, and naturally, because a lot of Americans don’t like anything they consider foreign (and because a lot of Americans aren’t bright enough to figure out that the English-language broadcast is only one channel away), there have been many tweets complaining about the games being broadcast in Spanish.

Hey guys, if you’re so upset about the games being aired in Spanish on ESPN2… just flip to ESPN, watch in English and pay it no further thought. And if you’re just shaking angry because Spanish speakers get to conveniently watch a football game in their native language… maybe find a little empathy.

This simulcast will continue through Week 9, meaning we’ll get eight more weeks of dumb and/or xenophobic people getting upset about this. Can’t wait!
