12:22 PM ET 03.25 | UFC featherweight contender Chan Sung Jung was dismayed recently at the gi worn by UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre during the champ's entrance walk for his bout with Nick Diaz at UFC 157. To express his disapproval, Jung wrote an open letter to the Canadian. "For Asians, this flag is a symbol of war crimes, much like the German Hakenkreuzflagge. Did you know that? I hope not," he said. "Just like Nazis, the Japanese also committed atrocities under the name of 'Militarism'. You can easily learn what they've done by googling (please do), although it's only the tiny tip of an enormous iceberg...Many people say GSP is the best Welterweight fighter throughout history, to which I totally agree. This means you have a great influence on every single fan of yours all around the world. And I do believe your wearing 'the symbol of War Crime' is a very bad example for them, not to mention for yourself." Read the entire message at the sourced link.

He's right. This was dumb.

Well, GSP doesn't do his own twitter, perhaps he doesn't pick out his own clothes either. It's never his fault...
