Who: Chipper Jones, Former Atlanta Brave
Offending tweet: @RealCJ10: "Ya'll think if they took all them gators they trap in Fla ans La and put them in the Rio Grande, it wud stop the illegals from crossing? Jk"
It’s never a good idea for a white former baseball player from the South to get involved in immigration issues, just ask Chipper Jones. This is another one of those tweets that was meant as a joke, hence the “jk” Chipper so thoughtfully ended his tweet with, but the implications are extremely offensive. It's also good to see that grammar is still not a priority in the good ol' South. Check out some of these great reactions to CJ's words.
