Kevin Pillar Gets Pissed After Striking Out And Drops A Homophobic Slur


Toronto Blue Jays outfielder, Kevin Pillar, wasn’t too happy after being quick pitched by Atlanta Braves pitcher, Jason Motte, and he let Motte know it. Out of his frustration of striking out Pillar yelled something in the direction of Motte. Both benches cleared but nothing really surmounted. After looking at the replay it appeared as if Pillar shouted out a homophobic slur at Motte. Major League Baseball immediately launched an investigation of Pillar’s actions.

Let’s see what Twitter had to say about this.


Pillar has since come out and apologized for his actions in a post game interview and via social media. The Blue Jays in an effort to get ahead of the MLB investigation have issued a statement of their own and have suspended Pillar for two games. Either way this incident is not a good look for the Blue Jays organization who many didn't need another excuse to hate them.
