Whatever...I will watch the Timberwolves before the Twins in April and May and June.
Matt's Dirty Marketing plan for the Twins; cancel culture the Wolves.
Matt when did you last use the Q word on someone? HMMM?
I'll use it when its someone's preferred term and I know its what they want. I don't ever throw it around as an insult, or use it to describe a group of people I don't know personally.
That's not what Ant did.
"Look at these queer ass n****s, man. Look at the world I came to." There's a woman with him laughing in the passenger seat. There was a caption too ... "Dese n****s different."
Here is a pretty good take from a Canis poster:
This might sound kinda weird, but it's not even the homophobia that bothers me, it's the meanness. Like you can be quietly and inwardly homophobic and, as much as that sucks, not really bother anybody; you can even be vocally homophobic amongst your homophobic friends and still not really bother anybody. This is different.
As many have pointed out, Ant is a very young dude, very possibly raised in a homophobic culture and I can absolutely cut him slack for that (I would hope he'd want to learn about why so many people are upset about this and be open to changing his attitude, but that's up to him) but this was broadcast in a way that just feels mean-spirited to me, which isn't how I wanted to view Ant, as a mean-spirited person who would pick on strangers online for any reason.
