Report: Josh Hader issued tearful apology in Brewers clubhouse

Josh Hader

Josh Hader continues to make amends for some ugly tweets of his that resurfaced earlier this week.

Stephen Watson of WISN 12 News in Milwaukee reported on Friday that the Brewers reliever issued an emotional apology inside the team’s clubhouse before their first game of the second half. Watson also added that everybody seemed to accept his apology and that they were hoping to move forward.

This was echoed by Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY Sports, who said that Hader cried during his apology and quoted Brewers outfielder and longtime Hader roommate Brett Phillips as saying that he never exhibited any racism.

The 24-year-old Hader, who made this year’s National League All-Star team thanks to a breakout first half of the year, had several offensive tweets emerge amid his appearance in Tuesday’s All-Star Game. The tweets, which were sent back in 2011 and 2012 when he was a teenager, included Hader quoting vulgar rap lyrics as well as using racist and homophobic language.

Hader has also apologized publicly for the objectionable posts, and now it sounds like the team is ready to move forward in light of his show of remorse.
