Pedro Martinez apologizes for using stereotypical war cry after Indians win


Hall of Fame pitcher turned MLB analyst Pedro Martinez had a regrettable moment on the air Monday night, and he has since apologized.

After the Indians completed their sweep of the Red Sox in the ALDS, Pedro was joking about how well he used to pitch against Cleveland when he was Boston’s ace. Martinez said he used to “hunt Indians” but now wants to pay tribute to them, and this is how he chose to do it:

While Pedro was obviously joking, there are many 12-year-olds who could tell you why that was an insensitive thing to do. Martinez later apologized on Twitter:

It seemed like an honest oversight from a guy who loves messing around, but you obviously can’t joke like that when you’re an analyst on national TV. Pedro likely won’t let that happen again.
