LGBTQ activists demand Blue Jays’ Anthony Bass gets boot despite apology

Although Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass issued an apology for a post about Christianity and the Target boycott on his Instagram, LGBTQ activist groups are calling for his head. 

In a video statement published to the Toronto Blue Jays Twitter account, Bass said he was sorry for sharing an Instagram reel from a Christian social media influencer that discussed the biblical foundation for boycotting companies that promote gender ideology to children. 

“I recognize yesterday I made a post that was hurtful to the pride community which includes friends of mine and close family members of mine and I’m truly sorry for that,” said Bass.

“I just spoke with my teammates and I apologized to them and as of right now I’m using the Blue Jays’ resources to better educate myself and make better decisions moving forward.” 

Within hours of the apology being posted onto the official team’s account, the radical far-left group Egale Canada called on the Blue Jays to take Bass “off the roster.” 

“Despite apologizing, BlueJays’ Anthony Bass has used his platform to share anti-2SLGBTQI hate. It’s time for the Jays to take number 52 off the roster and stand with the 2SLGBTQI community,” wrote Egale Canada. 

The Toronto Blue Jays tweet featuring Bass’ apology has received over 12,300 replies and 3,339 likes with many Canadians offering their support for the pitcher. 

Bass also received his share of criticism for apologizing for his beliefs, including from fellow baseball players such as former two-time World Series Championship player Aubrey Huff.

“This is why you will continue to wear the rainbow jersey. Because you lack the balls to stand up for your Christian morals & beliefs. But you’ll belittle a flight attendant who refused to pick up after your kids,” said Huff. 

The Instagram post in question was a short clip by the Christian influencer Ryan Miller. 

“Here’s the reason biblically why I believe Christians have gotta be boycotting Target, Bud Light, and any other corporation that’s pushing the things they’re pushing,” said Miller. 

“The Bible tells us what to do as Christians… To take part in that is to take part in that god of Mammon that they’re serving and take part of that darkness.”
