Josh Hader

Postby UMFan83 » Wed Jul 18, 2018 3:52 am

Sorry but this is worth it’s own thread. So many thoughts here, the biggest here being the actual comments of course which are shocking and pathetic. But how does this dude not delete these tweets years ago? Does he really want everyone to know he’s a racist? Did he forget about them? Did he think no one would find them?

Brewers fans rationalizing that the tweets are bad yet the people outing them are worse. :popcorn:

am I missing something? when did these come to light? why would his family members just now be taking off his jersey.

I'm very confused.

The tweets surfaced during the game. Guessing when he was pitching more people than ever were searching his name and it was discovered???? And some MLB handlers were being proactive (or even his family) when they found out so his family wouldn’t get harassed or whatever at the game??

I always enjoy snark from white guys chiding "libtards" for seeking opportunities to feel outraged over the use of hate language. Bleacher Nation comments should be a joy to visit for such commentary.

Personally, I think 18 is old enough to know that the n word is bad. This is my personal opinion.

He has the bad triple crown

Racist
Homophobic
Misogynistic

Does he say he “misspoke” or does he blame Colonel Sanders?

This guy is a real piece of horsefeathers. Literally tweeting out "white power." Tons of bigoted tweets about minorities and gay people. An all-around scumbag.

He made a statement after the game and said he was young and immature when he made those tweets and don’t reflect how he feels now

Holy horsefeathers. How did this, in particular, not be found sooner? He can't even use his stupid ass excuse on this one.

Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

Percentage on him getting released and subsequently picked up by the Cardinals where he becomes a fan favorite for "Telling it like it is" and inevitably getting asked about his racism and then him saying something backhandedly racist like "I'm not racist, just ask Dexter Fowler" at which point Dexter Fowler just gives the blank Doc Rivers stare wondering if this is real life as he finds himself constantly walking on eggshells through the Cardinals locker room, not sure when he might bump into Josh Hader on a day when his favorite hunting dog, Nathaniel, has passed away which is TERRIFYING AS horsefeathers for Dexter and he just up and decides to retire from baseball for his own safety and then the city of St. Louis rejoices and then Hader and Bud Norris make out in the team shower?

Like... 70%?
