Sacramento Kings News: Peter Vecsey catches heat for calling Kings owner Vivek Ranadive 'Aladdin'

Former sports columnist and NBA TV analyst Peter Vecsey was taken to task on Twitter by Sacramento Kings fans on Thursday night for this next tweet where he calls Kings owner Vivek Ranadive 'Aladdin':

Vecsey took major heat for his comments on the social media service from Kings fans who saw the tweet as racially insensitive while also wholly inaccurate. Ranadive hails from India, while the story of Aladdin is a Middle Eastern folktale. Ranadive wasn't offended by the tweet himself, but thanked Kings fans for their passionate support:

As of Saturday, Vecsey has neither responded to Kings fans' tweets nor apologized.
