All-Star pitcher apologizes for bad, offensive old tweets

Brewers P Josh Hader's Old Racist, Homphobic, & Sexist Tweets Are Unearthed During All-Star Game (TWEETS)

The MLB All-Star game was marred by a scandal involving Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader after racist and anti-gay tweets he had sent as a 17-year-old began to circulate on social media.

However, it would get a whole lot worse for Hader as he would have plenty of explaining to do after the game after some racist and homophobic tweets surfaced from his past. Hader learned of the situation when he left the game, apologized and took responsibility for the tweets, saying they did not reflect his values or the person he is now.

"During last night's game we became aware of Mr. Hader's unacceptable social media comments in years past and have since been in communication with the Brewers regarding our shared concerns", Major League Baseball said in a statement released Wednesday.

Hader said after the game that he was immature when he posted the tweets.

"Being 17 years old, you make stupid decisions and mistakes", Hader said.

A look at what did Josh Hader say on Twitter? Hader said he did not "vividly" remember the tweets.

Hader said he would likely address the situation with his Milwaukee Brewers teammates and was prepared for the possibility of a suspension for some other type of discipline from Major League Baseball. It won't happen again.

Hader said he had no excuse for what he had written, which includes mentions of the n-word, KKK, white power and "I hate gay people".

Asked about the context of the tweets, Hader said: "I'm sure there were some rap lyrics being (tweeted)".
