Tuesday the city of El Paso was pushed over the edge yet again as Bleacher Reporter writer, Lisa Horne posted a story for USC fans that were coming to the Sun Bowl. Let’s just say it did not paint El Paso in the best of light.

Horne then got bombarded with hate comments in the comment section under her story. Every four letter word you can think of was directed her way. She was also harassed on Twitter and she actually received two death threats from El Pasoans.

The article was eventually taken down from the site.

Horne was kind enough and also a good enough person to agree to be on SportsTalk and explain her side of the story.

Below is what she told us.

 

“My intention was not to take any shots but it was to put a little humor for USC fans. That was my intention.”
