While participating in a Facebook video broadcast for Barstool Sports, the 27-year-old sports reporter and others appearing on the show mocked 18-year-old Mayte Lara Ibarra, who recently revealed that she was her high school’s valedictorian and an undocumented immigrant.

“I didn’t even know Mexicans were that smart,” Austen quipped to her co-hosts during the Barstool Sports broadcast.

She also asserted that “the Chinese guy is always the smartest guy in math class” and that Jewish people are “stingy.”

As a result of the tirade, Fox Sports said that Austen, who is a contract employee, would not be participating in future broadcasts.
