Brewers Josh Hader apologizes for offensive tweets that surfaced during All-Star game

The tweets went from being quite hilarious to downright disturbing, homophobic, and racist.

Hader's tweets, which surfaced during his All-Star Game appearance, featured language that was racist, homophobic and sexist.

Hader issued an apology in front of hoards of media after the game, saying that that comments don't "reflect on who [he] is as a person today".

Major League Baseball chief legal officer Dan Halem says Josh Hader will talk tonight.

After Hader gave up a game-tying three-run homer to Jean Segura Tuesday night, Twitter users scrolled back through Hader's account and discovered a series of offensive content sent over an eight-month span when Hader was 17. MLB attempting some sort of way-after-the-fact punitive action on Hader like a fine or a suspension would (a) be met with some understandable resistance by Hader and the union; and (b) would look more like the league trying to deal with a P.R. crisis more than dealing with the player. You always get in trouble for things you said when you're younger. "I'm deeply sorry for what was said". "It doesn't reflect any of my beliefs".

Antonio Conte's farewell to Chelsea fans
His statement issued through the League Managers' Association ( LMA ) thanked the club for two "unforgettable seasons". Sarri's first game at the helm is scheduled to be the July 23 friendly against Perth Glory in Western Australia.

"The guy I know, he's a great guy", said Yelich.

"I'm completely and utterly embarrassed and feel terrible to have put the fans, my teammates and the Blue Jays organizion in this position. I really don't know exactly what's out there".

In the messages, which Hader posted when he was 17 years old and a student at Old Mill High in Anne Arundel County, Hader made liberal use of the n-word, made derogatory references to women and expressed hatred toward gay people.

There's no excuse for the tweets, and it caught up with Hader on Tuesday night. For me, I'm moving on from it. "I was in high school and we're still learning who we are in high school. I'm ready for any consequences that happen for what happened seven years ago". You live and you learn.

Hader was selected to the National League All-Star team in just his second major league season this year. They were wearing blank National League gear outside the clubhouse toward the end of the game.
