SAN FRANCISCO (WKBN)— Former Oakland Athletics slugger Jose Canseco is under fire on for his tweets about women.
The former A’s player immediately got backlash on social media.
Here are the full tweets:
“What is going on with all these politicians molesting women I’ve been molested by several women and never complained.”
“I see the difference I guess cuz I was a good-looking guy and these politicians look like a bag of boogers.”
And the Oakland Athletics also issued a statement:
We are disappointed to learn of Mr. Canseco’s statements. Mr Canseco is not an employee of the Athletics and his statements do not reflect the values of our organization or those of our most trusted partners.
One Twitter user responded, “Jose, it’s time to put the phone down.”
On his Twitter profile, Canseco says, “my dream is to manage one day in the major leagues.”
