Reggie Williams, former Twins prospect, goes on homophobic Twitter rant
|Williams took to Twitter to express his, um, curiosity about why there are so many gays these days.|
At the time he went wild with a homophobic Twitter rant on Saturday, most everyone thought Williams was still employed by the Minnesota Twins organization. Only later did it come to light that he was actually released by the Twins early this month.
Though he's no longer associated with the Twins, Williams' rant is perhaps still worth sharing, simply because it raises the time-honored question -- what the hell was he thinking?
Here's how it started:
With the Twins set to unveil the organization's long-awaited "It Gets Better" video next month, it's probably safe to say Minnesota won't have interest in Williams' services again anytime soon. What about other teams? Twitter boneheadedness aside, his .256 batting average in the low minors last year suggests he should probably start polishing his resume.
I apologize again to anyone that I offended. I don't hate anyone and I should have stood on Gods word more than my own words.-- Reggie Williams (@ReggWilliams88) April 23, 2012
Maybe Marcus Bachmann is hiring?
