  1. Tired of reporters desperately seeking a viral moment. Cheers for Tyler taking the high road with a classy response and then the win right after. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  2. Iranian head coach: We lost and that really blows. But that's nothing compared to my fate which awaits me. The ayatollah has declared that I will be beheaded pronto. (Crying)


  4. In his excellent way, Tyler actually got in a classy dig at this smug and snide reporter by pointing out how "in the USA we make progress every day", like how we just voted to reject a murderous theocratic autocracy. Something the people of this reporter's nation are oppressed from rejecting, thanks to their regime of theocratic zealots.

  5. Lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ these people hate us so much but they have been at war with their own people and surrounding contries and i mean years im talking bout going back to BC times for years the reporter was just but hurt

  6. 1. There is no official pronunciation of Iran in another language.
    2. Interracial people are not โ€œblack.โ€
    3. Exposure is everything; regardless of heritage.
    4. American media will racialize anything.

  7. Actually he was too soft. He can't compare discrimination in the US (that exists) with discrimination in Iran against other races or even women or non muslims.

  8. It's always so stupid when people try to dictate how their country's name should be pronounced. Like, come on, it's a different language with its own vocabulary.

  9. As an American from Iran I have to admit it annoys me a bit when people say "eye-ran" but that reporter is a jerk. USA! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  10. We don't have to pronounce any country name or even place a certain way. Why? Cause that is what languages and accents are. This happens in every language when they say USA or other countries and cities. They rarely say the name of the place WITH or IN the language/accent of that place. Why does America have this standard and others don't?
    We might as well say Meheeco for MExico and Al Qahira for Cairo. Can we stop pretending to be world scholars and show offs and just say it in our native accent/language?

  11. It would be like calling Tyler Adams a gringo be he is an American, or yank, is this how Iran feels about how he said or pronounced thier country? Cause Gringo and Yank is a slur and to me as a Mexican born, you were born in the USA like Tyler Adams you are pretty much all American, Tyler Adams to me is pretty much all American, not African American, American I feel should be an ethnicity for those born in the USA like Me Adams, his ethnicity to me is also just AMERICAN.
