MLB Tries To Meme, End Up Seeming Racist

Want to know what not to do while running a twitter account for a professional sports league? I assume you already know, but apparently this guy never had the curse of knowledge.

Normally I don’t really care about this stuff, and even now I’m not really that enraged by it. Yet, I feel like this requires some attention. The picture above is of Ichiro and Shohei Ohtani. Ohtani is 6’4, 203 pounds, pitcher, DH, slugger, and Japanese. Meanwhile, Ichiro is 5’11, 175 pounds, more of a singles and doubles hitter who can spread it out, and Japanese.

Wow so much in common, I mean one thing in common!? Holy crap it’s like I can’t point out one racist thing that makes them in common… How can the person who runs the MLB be so incompitant and tweet something this blatantly racist out to the public? The only thing in common is that they’re Japanese. Literally Ichiro and and Shohei couldn’t be more different. Shame on you MLB. Shame.
