Adam Jones

 

Yesterday we reported that Baltimore Orioles All-Star outfielder Adam Jones, claimed that a fan threw a banana at him during a game against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on Sunday.

The Giants organization, have yet to identify the culprit, but they did issue an apology to Jones for the incident according to Sports Illustrated.

“We were extremely disappointed to learn about the incident involving Adam Jones at AT&T Park yesterday. The Giants have a zero tolerance policy against this type of behavior, which results in immediate ejection from the ballpark. While we have been investigating the matter since we learned of the situation, unfortunately we have been unable to identify the person responsible. We would like to extend our sincerest apologies to Adam and the entire Orioles organization for this unfortunate incident. The inappropriate actions of this individual in no way reflect the values of our organization and our fans.”

Jones was also disappointed with the fact that some of his followers were defending the actions of the banana thrower, even going as far as to say that he may be done with social media.

 

Anyone defending the actions of the fan throwing the banana is a moron, there is no place for such wreckless, ignorant and bigoted acts in our society.

I hope Jones won’t allow the misguided opinions of the loud minority to chase him off Twitter, it would be a shame.

    How is a banana racist? Wait! Bananas have been around for millions of years and their racial agenda is now coming to light! If it was a piece of fried chicken or watermelon would this hurt millions of peoples feeling? Wait! it’s a conspiracy! Food is the next racial problem America is facing. Thankfully the giants apologies or they would have been thought to be in on this horrific fruit racism. I hope mr. jones won’t suffer from P.T.S.. We all as a country must ban together and never toss or even mention some foods for it can devastate some people feeling. Fruit and other racially motivated food must be stopped! If you purchase or offer foods to people that may be racist, then you can be suspected of supporting food racism!!
