Seattle Mariners Catcher Steve Clevenger made some highly questionable comments on Twitter Thursday about the unrest in Charlotte, N.C. following the shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott by Charlotte police. In two tweets, Clevenger came at the whole Black Lives Matter organization, as well as President Obama.
“Black people beating whites when a thug got shot holding a gun by a black officer haha shit cracks me up! Keep kneeling for the Anthem!” he wrote. He followed this up by comparing protestors to animals and saying they should be locked up. “BLM is pathetic once again! Obama you are pathetic once again! Everyone involved should be locked behind bars like animals!”
