Josh Hader apologizes for old, offensive tweets

Josh Hader

Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Josh Hader apologized on Tuesday night after old tweets of his began to surface.

The tweets from Hader mostly came from 2011-12 and included him quoting offensive rap lyrics, as well as a few homophobic quotes, such as “gay people freak me out.”

Knowing full well that the tweets began circulating during the All-Star Game, Hader was prepared to answer for them after the game. He apologized, saying he was “young, immature and stupid” when he sent the tweets.

Hader, who is now 24, was 17/18 when he sent the tweets. He certainly was young and immature when he sent them, and it shows some maturity that he is taking responsibility for them now. The real question is whether he still believes some of those homophobic thoughts he tweeted, because then there would be an issue. Fans have already turned on him as a result.
