Delete. Your. Old. Tweets.


That’s been the memo to everyone for a while now with athletes like Josh Allen, Donte DiVincenzo, Ryan Rolison, and Josh Hader getting outed for homophobic, racist, and/or sexist tweets made during their teenage years. One would assume the message to clean up was received loud and clear after Hader went viral during his first All-Star Game appearance, but apparently not because we’ve got another case with Braves lefty Sean Newcomb.
Newcomb, of course, came one strike away from throwing a no hitter against the Dodgers Sunday. That should have been his story for the day. Instead someone went through his Twitter history and discovered some unflattering stuff that includes N-bombs:

Braves reporter Kelsey Wingert reports Newcomb became aware of getting Hader’d after the game. He and the Braves are now in damage control mode:

For those wondering, Newcomb was around 18 and 19 years old when he was pumping out the tweets that bit him in the ass today.
