MLB All Star Josh Hader's Racist & Homophobic Tweets Exposed

Hader struggled in the All-Star Game, his first as a player, giving up three runs and four hits in 0.1 inning.

In a rather weird scene in the National League clubhouse afterward, a grim-faced Hader was surrounded by a media mob demanding answers for Twitter posts made back in 2011 and 2012.

"It's something that happened when I was 17 years old", Hader said in the National League clubhouse after the game.

Hader issued an apology in front of hoards of media after the game, saying that that comments don't "reflect on who [he] is as a person today". I'm deeply sorry for what I said and what's been going on.

Hader, 24, said that his old messages do not reflect his current beliefs.

However, when asked what had changed about his beliefs between then and now, Hader had no response.

Asked about the context of the tweets, Hader said: "I'm sure there were some rap lyrics being (tweeted)".

Hader said he had no excuse for what he had written, which includes mentions of the n-word, KKK, white power and "I hate gay people". Some of the tweets are also sexually graphic and demeaning toward women. I know Hader, I know he's a great guy, he's a great teammate.

Major League Baseball reportedly is considering a statement regarding Hader's tweets on Wednesday.

"No deletes", Hader said.

"Obviously when you're a kid you just tweet what's on your mind, and that's what's on (Twitter)", he said.

It will certainly be interesting to hear MLB's response, and hopefully it's not just that Hader was a dumb 17-year-old.

Some family members reportedly swapped their replica All-Star jerseys of Hader with generic jerseys that no longer contained his name on the back.

"It's something they shouldn't be involved in", he said.

"There's no excuses for what was said or what happened", he said.

"This is not who I am and will use this as an opportunity to better myself". "Live and learn. It won't happen again". I'm ready for any consequences for what happened seven years ago.

He added: "Being 17 years old you make stupid decisions and mistakes". "I really don't know what all is out there".

The Brewers also issued a statement Wednesday, admonishing the pitcher for the tweets, but adding that they don't represent who Hader has become. "So we move on from it. I know he's a great teammate".
