3-Word T-Shirt Message on MLB Baseball Player Provokes Outrage
Manny Machado is no stranger to controversy, and the third baseman for the San Diego Padres
has received numerous criticisms from other MLB stars, both publicly and privately.
He caused controversy this week by arriving at Padres Spring Training wearing
a shirt that read, “Let’s Go Brandon.” The expression is a common jab at Vice President Joe Biden.
Netizens were quick to comment when images of Machado’s outfit appeared online.
One person commented, “Love to see it.”
“Shut up and hit the baseball,” said a second. As they say, “no politics in sports.”
“Even Machado knows what’s up!” read another comment. “Let’sGo, Brandon! Slam Diego!”
Keep politics out of sports, please.Where is Fox News’s outrage? Where are the shut up and K?” another person asked.
Politics in sports has drawn criticism from many, but it is unlikely to disappear anytime soon.
