If you know even a little bit about baseball, you know that the symbol for a strikeout is the letter K, with a backwards K symbolizing a strikeout looking. Well, a young woman at the Braves game the other night did not know this. When the Braves’ starter had amassed three strikeouts, all swinging, the strikeout signs displayed “KKK.” While this obviously was not a reference to the Ku Klux Klan, she was not aware. Instead of asking one of the probable 25 other people at the game, she did what angry people in 2017 do best, and immediately took to social media.
While her bitmoji game is on point, this is a crazy move. Literally could’ve had this calmly explained to her in two minutes if she just asked anyone sitting around her, but no, this was necessary for the Twitter world to see. So as soon as people responded to the tweet explaining that this was just a tradition that takes place at every baseball game and not an isolated display of white supremacy, she admitted she was wrong, right? Nope. She would NOT let this go, denying everyone’s claims of how normal this was.
In another classic 2017 move, she later deleted her Twitter. Fight your incorrect point until it’s absolutely destroyed, then delete your account. That’s about as 2017 as ripping a juul while using a fidget spinner at an anti-Trump rally. What has the world come to?
