PC Police Strikes Again: Fox sports overacts fires sports reporter Emily Austen for telling jokes peeved as racist against Mexicans, Chinese, and a Jew

Here’s the report first and I’ll have my comments after.
Phiily DotCom reports Emily Austen, a 27-year-old Fox Sports Reporter, was fired Friday after making insensitive remarks about Mexican, Jewish and Chinese people.
Austen's troubles stemmed from an appearance on Barstool Sports' "Rundown" 

Thursday where, according to Deadspin, she disparaged Mexican and Chinese people after being asked about a high school valedictorian who used Twitter to brag about being an undocumented citizen.

"I didn't even know Mexicans were that smart. ...That's f***ed up," Austen said. "I didn't mean it like that. You see, you guys know that the Chinese guy is always the smartest guy in math class."

After that the Tampa Bay Rays and Orlando Magic reporter added some Anti-Semitic remarks when talking about her work experience as a server in Boca Raton, Florida.

"The way I used to talk to the Jews in Boca. I just didn't care," she said. "They would complain and b***h about everything. I gave a guy, delivered his beer, and he was complaining to me that there was too much head. I knew that he was a stingy a** and he wasn't going to give me a tip."
