The way he chose to express that yesterday, however, might result in a fine from Major League Baseball.
Here's the controversial Twitter exchange Revere, currently on the disabled list with a broken foot, had with Aqua Nightclub owner Jado Hark:
In any event, Revere is probably facing a fine for the "no homo" tweet. From Hardball Talk:
My booty is gonna be huge from doin all these damn squats from all my rehabbing workouts..-- Ben Revere (@BenRevere9) September 5, 2013
Major League Baseball adopted a social media policy last year that, among other things, prohibits players from tweeting sexist, racist, bigoted or homophobic things. The "no homo" thing is the very definition of homophobia in that the speaker is afraid of being mistaken for homosexual.Revere hasn't responded to a handful of people calling for him to apologize.
