Isn't it 2014? Can't we do away with things like this??
Houston Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart showed his homophobic colors on Monday when he tweeted the worst gay slur of all! To none other than Justin Bieber!
The Biebs may be getting in lots of legal trouble, but he doesn't deserve to be called such an offensive term! Nor does anybody else!
The 23-year-old MLB player was responding to a tweet from Canadian baseball player Tyson Gillies, who said:
Harmless smack talk! That is until Cosart opened his
mouth keyboard and tweeted:
“ya you guys claim that f*g beiber too smh about right.”
You mean, about WRONG?! Very WRONG!? Also, we're pretty sure that Justin Bieber is just from Canada. If you're from a place, you don't need to be claimed.
The tweet was deleted, and the Astros immediately distanced themselves, saying:
"We do not condone the language used on Twitter today by Jarred. It is unacceptable from anyone in our organization. We've spoken to Jarred about this matter, and he is extremely remorseful. He realizes his mistake and has apologized."
And then of course Jarred’s apology followed, when he tweeted:
We really want to believe athletes when they say this stuff, but the fact is that this was NOT said in the heat of the moment. He took the time to type it and send it out.
So, does this reflect who he is if a homophobic word rolled off his
tongue fingers that easily? Because he says it doesn't.
Hopefully his apology was sincere because this is just horrible.
