The Milwaukee Brewers All-Star Helper took the hill for the first time since his apology for past racist, homophobic tweets.
Several disturbing tweets, many of which used a homophobic bow, came out on Sunday Atlanta Braves pitcher Sean Newcomb surfacing – just at the same time, Newcomb lost a no-hit bid in the second inning with two outs.
Twitter user @NatsSquid re-produced three tweets from 2011 and 2012 – Newcomb, the today is 25 years old, was an 18-year-old senior at Middleboro (Massachusetts) High School.
The first Tweet mi a racial epithet was a line from the rap song The Slogan by Drake with Lil & # 39; Wayne and Tyga
However, the other two are – and a few more on Newcomb's Twitter -Feed which have since been deleted – contain homophobic slurs.
Newcomb asked to contact the media after the Braves clubhouse closed after the match.
"That's something that obviously can not happen, I feel bad, I do not mean to offend, I definitely regret it," he said.
"This is something that obviously can not happen, I feel bad about it, I do not want to insult anyone, I definitely regret it." – Sean Newcomb
– Kelsey Wingert (@KelsWingert) 29 He added that he meant "nothing with it." I did not insult everyone and I'll see to it that it does not happen again. "
The incident was remarkably similar what Hader did at this year's All-Star Game in Washington.

After Hader's old tweets were released, apologies He himself for his comments immediately after the game. He was not disciplined by MLB but has to undergo sensitivity training.
It is expected that Newcomb will receive a similar punishment.
However, Toronto Blue Jays and MLB suspended midfielder Kevin Pillar for two games last year for playing a homophobic arc. This incident happened during a game, not on social media.
