Conservative commentator and podcast host Megyn Kelly came out swinging on an Major League Baseball player who put out an apology for a tweet he published just ahead of LGBT Pride Month, proving that there are still some sane individuals still out in the world representing truth in a swirling sea of progressive madness.
According to the Daily Caller, “The Toronto Blue Jays released a remorseful video on Twitter of Anthony Bass apologizing after facing backlash for urging supporters to boycott companies’ Pride Month campaigns, according to ESPN. Kelly dragged Bass on her podcast Wednesday, taking a veiled shot at his masculinity.”
Nothing hurts quite like an attractive woman saying you lack testicular fortitude. Especially someone in a league like Kelly’s. This dude might not be able to recover from this. Don’t be squishy. Don’t compromise. Don’t back down. And for goodness sake, don’t back down.
“A certain — what’s the word — a vulgar term for a cat comes to mind when I see this behavior,” Kelly stated during an episode of her podcast Wednesday.
The Daily Caller then said, “Bass’ original Instagram post Monday advocated boycotts of Target and Bud Light. Both companies have combatted controversy for publicly promoting LGBTQ lifestyles by selling Pride Month-themed products.”
He then posted up a video that talked about the “biblical reasons Christians should boycott Target” in a post on his Instagram story. There was no additional commentary provided on the clip in question.
“I recognize yesterday I made a post that was hurtful to the Pride community, which includes friends of mine and close family members of mine. I am truly sorry for that,” Bass stated in his weak, yellow-bellied apology. “I just spoke with my teammates and shared with them my actions yesterday. I apologized with them, and as of right now I am using the Blue Jays’ resources to better educate myself to make better decisions moving forward.”
Bass then issued an apology to team manager John Schneider and general manager Ross Atkins after he arrived at the ballpark on Tuesday. Schneider then went on to advise Bass that he would need to talk to his whole team about the situation.
The team’s manager went on to point out that the initial post made by Bass “doesn’t represent our overall feelings as an organization” and said that “individual player sentiments are not representative of his club’s beliefs.”
According to a report from the Toronto City News, Bass, who has been a rather prolific user of Twitter, has now deleted his entire account.
“The Blue Jays are scheduled to celebrate Pride Month on June 9 when they host the Twins, according to the New York Post. They will distribute 15,000 rainbow flag jerseys during the event,” the Daily Caller stated.
As of this writing, the team has not put forth any plans to discipline Bass for his words. It’s ridiculous that he was made to apologize for not buying into the insanity of the woke mob in 2023. I, for one, will not bow to this insanity, nor will I apologize for standing on truth.
