Peter King Gets Triggered By Braves Game

Videos by OutKick

Of all the spineless, triggered accounts online, the top rack is crowded with angry sports personalities and people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. One of these sports personalities, Peter King, has managed to stay seated on the rack next to Elle Duncan, Pablo Torre, and Adrian Wojnarowski, and on Saturday, he showed us why.

For the first time in 19 months, the Atlanta Braves played with 100% seating capacity at home on Friday. It was an awesome moment that brought the state of Georgia one step closer to normalcy, the end goal in the fight against COVID-19. Given the widespread enjoyment of the game, it was a must that at least one blue check, disgusted sports media member would look to spin the story negatively. Insert Peter King, who interrupted his Saturday afternoon to drop this one:

How dare sports fans celebrate?

King’s tweet is sad, but so are the death totals of all causes. King’s response also has nothing to do with the photo tweeted. Zero.

King is applying the worst of a situation, a total that is roughly 14 months and counting, to a present-day event. There was a time when fans should not have been in attendance at games. That time is not May 7, 2021, when over 257 million coronavirus vaccine doses have been administered.

King’s logic is flawed. The death total from COVID is never going to go down. Nor will any total. It will never again be lower than what King tweeted Saturday. Does that mean Americans should never return to baseball games? Of course not.

It appears that, like Dr. Fauci, Peter King is having a hard time letting go of COVID. I get why Fauci can’t get over it. COVID has enhanced his voice, a voice that otherwise doesn’t matter. That doesn’t apply to King, though. So, why is he having such a hard time letting go? Perhaps, as he revealed last year on OutKick, he is not very well informed about coronavirus.

On the other hand:

  1. This phony pos should do his homework on those death numbers even the cdc stated they were wildly overstated and when hospitals are paid more for a covid death even though you died of a heart attack what do you think they are going to do. Just shows you that this idiot is a special kind of stupid to even bring that up

  2. Well, maybe it’s time for Mr. King to stop supporting and making money off his own sport that’s likely going to be opening their stadiums this fall. Take a stand, Pete. Walk away. Maybe you can get a job a local newspaper writing a column about about your expertise in the area of virology.

  3. He is a pussy. Nothing like a grown man trying to get up votes for his stupid Twitter account. That’s what he’s looking for. King is a slob. He should be questioning why the Commissioner isnt a person of color or why the vast majority of senior MLB officials and team management are white males. MLB is a racist league. He should be more worried about that.

  4. Every time you see or hear a number related Chinese Flu deaths, remember that according to the Sacred and Holy CDC, 94% of so-called fatalities are people who died *with* the Chinese Flu. Only 6% died *of* the Chinese Flu.

  5. Opioid overdoses kill 100,000 people in America every year and that number increases by 20% each year. Keep in mind folks that the same big Pharma that sold the world on Oxycontin is selling the world on vaccines that were rushed to market. Hmm, I wonder what vaccinated people will be addicted to or suffer from just to pay more money to big Pharma?

  6. Fuck these damn shit ass sack of cum mother fucking shit suckers! Fuck them. There is no middle ground with these people. Fuck them.

    Yes as a poster said Bobby the Joe Biden voter. You voted for this. There is no debate. Elections have consequences. You were warmed. Perhaps………

  7. King and his leftist ilk typically cease daily war-time casualty ticker-counts (as well as organizing anti-war rallies) as propaganda once they oust a Republican from the Oval Office. Guess he’s either admitting President Trump’s still in charge, or the vaccine isn’t the end-all cure (or goalpost-moving load of BS) for Covid-19. Uh-oh, I better be careful as I’m definitely with him on that latter sentiment.

  8. Journalism majors have the second lowest IQ for graduates.
    Only those who graduate with a degree in Education have a lower average IQ.

    It also seems that journalism majors as a group have a “chicken little” mentality.
    Not a good combination but one that does explain ESPN & CNN.

  9. When you listen to his interview with Clay about a year ago, you realize how wrong he was. He said cities like NY and San Francisco took the Coronavirus seriously and we would have had more deaths if not for the steps taken by those cities. I’ll give him a bit of a pass because he was completely misinformed at the start of the pandemic. But, this shows how you shouldn’t say dumb things before you have the statistics in front of you. And, to bring up the news was the biggest issue I had. If in 2021, after what you’ve experienced, believe in the news media, you are a moron.
