St. Louis Cardinals Fans Tweet Homophobic Rants Against San Francisco Giants

Posted: Updated:

The World Series is truly an exciting time for baseball fans nationwide. While the playoffs will inevitably produce a few sore losers along the way, a series of tweets sent by frustrated St. Louis Cardinals fans is truly disturbing.

After watching the Cardinals lose Game 7 of the National League Championship Series (NLCS) to the San Francisco Giants 9-0, crestfallen fans took to Twitter, poking fun at the Bay Area's renowned gay population. (WARNING: contains graphic language)

Writes one:

Scott Davis
I hope all the giants get aids in the gay fuck fest they're having in that gay ass disgrace of a city

And another:

Justin Garlik
Well the cards got buttfucked just like everyone that goes to San Francisco

After the story was first reported by SFist and Memphis TV WREG among other media outlets, a number of fans have tweeted apologies. But other Cardinals fans seem divided about the incident.

“They were disappointed. It was a bad week, bad day, bad three days. Come on. Give them a break," one fan is quoted as saying. "They’re from San Francisco. What are we supposed to say? Come on, it’s tough. You get us at a bad moment."
