Astros pitcher Jarred Cosart has apologized after he used a gay/homophobic slur to describe Justin Bieber when he tweeted a message to a former teammate.
Jarred deleted the offensive tweet from his account and apologized for “a very poor choice of words.” He also says in a tweet that the earlier post does not reflect who he is as a person.
I used a very poor choice of words in one of my tweets earlier today that I need to apologize for. The tweet does not reflect who I am. Or what I stand for as far as an organization. Go astros
The Houston Baseball Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow also issued the following statement on Jarred’s actions:
We do not condone the language used on Twitter today by Jarred. It is unacceptable from anyone in our organization. We’ve spoken to Jarred about this matter, and he is extremely remorseful. He realizes his mistake and has apologized.
