Woke Mob Tries To Cancel St. Louis Cardinals Rookie Brendan Donovan After Standout Performance

Videos by OutKick

After a spectacular showcase in Saturday’s 7-4 win against the Chicago Cubs, St. Louis Cardinals rookie Brendan Donovan, 25, didn’t take questions on how he helped fuel the 10-inning victory; rather, the attention was all on ‘problematic’ tweets from 2011, dug up by the cancel mob.

After the win Saturday night, Donovan apologized for tweets he had sent out using homophobic language … first posted when he was a teenager.

News of the tweets surfaced during the game, shifting the evaluation of the first-year player’s work on the field to the woke standard for evaluating a player, through their malleable perspective of what’s morally right and wrong.

During postgame interviews, Donovan appeared remorseful over the controversy but seemed also dejected by not being able to celebrate the best performance of his young career. Donovan registered another three-hit game and hit four runs, adding two in the 10th inning when the game was tied between the Cards and Cubs.

“I take full responsibility,” Donovan told reporters. “It was something I sent out a long time ago. I’m truly sorry to anyone I may have offended. Anyone that knows me as a person knows I see everyone the same, and I do not condone that type of behavior or anything.

“If I’ve offended you, I truly apologize,” he added. “Hopefully, I can do my part to show you that’s not who I am.”

  1. As as long as athletes and other apologize for this stuff they continue to give power to the mob. Can you send marine ever being asked to say sorry for something you did when you were 14. He should never have said sorry. He should have said he was 14 and didn’t know better and that is that

  2. ALL LIBS need to STFU. I personally think they’re ALL a cancer to society and should be dealt with the way the U.S dealt with Leprocy back in the day…..round them all up and drop them off on a remote Island in the middle of the Atlantic to fend for themselves
