Braves Fans Threaten To Boycott Team For Supporting Gay Rights

glaad spirit day


Sad day for the Braves and MLB fans in general.

Major League Baseball did a tremendously progressive move by supporting GLAAD’s Spirit Day. Spirit Day’s goal is to bring awareness to bullying of gay/lesbian/bi and transgender youth. So it’s sad that in a day where many took a stand against bullying, trolls found a way to try to make their voices heard.

All MLB teams posted the link to GLAAD’s Spirit Day page on Facebook and then this happened on the Braves page in particular, courtesy of Deadspin:

Sadly this is just a small sampling of what was an endless barrage of homophobic comments steeped with hate.

Embarrassing for the Braves and baseball fans as a whole.
