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.

@JarredCosart:
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.

  1. The moron is sorry because he got caught and got in trouble. He should apologize to Justin whom he meant to insult. He’s another phony.

  2. he didn’t apologize to Justin, he apologized for using the word that would offend gay people. Oh and by the way IVAN not everyone has to like Justin and they can voice their opinions if they want to. Its a free country last time i check to do so. It’s sad that you take it so personal when someone voice their dislike of the bieber. My work place doesn’t like Justin either and they actually make jokes about him, do you see me flipping out? no, grow up.

    • So basically you are saying that you are also a homophobe? It is never acceptable to use homophobic slurs at the workplace or when you are in the public eye.. You better learn that quick before you find yourself in the office with your HR rep facing a pink slip. If you think it is o.k. for someone to use that type of language while in the public eye like Jarred Cosart who could have faced repercussions from his team and the league, then you are living in the dark ages.

  3. So Jarred Cosart outed himself as a homophobe I see.. The only reason he apologized was because he could have faced repercussions from the league and his team. What a disgusting excuse for a human being.

  4. He only apologized because he had to……His management. If they hadnt said anything he probably would’ve left it up… He probably still says just not on twitter. I don’t think he is honestly apologetic.
