Voula Papachristou, a triple jumper from Greece, has been expelled from the Olympics over a tweet she made on her twitter account at the Olympic Village.

The translated tweet is seen here.

Yikes.

In an apology, Voula said

I would like to express my heartfelt apologies for the unfortunate and tasteless joke I published on my personal Twitter account. I am very sorry and ashamed for the negative responses I triggered, since I never wanted to offend anyone, or to encroach human rights.
