Ex-Giant, Now Twitter Troll Aubrey Huff Doesn’t Want People Wearing Masks
The advent of social media gives many of America’s professional athlete massive platforms. Some, like LeBron James and JJ Watt, have used their platforms to raise money for charity and promote social changes. Some, like Aubrey Huff, use their platform to troll Liberals.
Huff, who won two World Series titles while a member of the San Francisco Giants has quite a controversial Twitter feed. On Wednesday, the former First Baseman tweeted that he will no longer wear a mask and asked his followers to support the cause.
In a ratioed video he posted to Twitter, Huff said, “If you want to wear a mask and live in fear for the rest of your lives, that’s certainly your prerogative. But the vast majority of well-adjusted, sane, common sense people that aren’t sheep and can reason for themselves agree with me.”

Huff’s social media accounts have gotten him in trouble on a number of different occasions. In November of this year, he tweeted, “Getting my boys trained up on how to use a gun in the unlikely event Bernie Sanders defeats Donald Trump in 2020. In which case knowing how to effectively use a gun under socialism will be a must. By the way most the head shots were theirs.”
Following that message the San Francisco Giants decided not the invite Huff to a ceremony celebrating the team’s 2010 World Series victory.

The team said in a statement:
“Earlier this month, we reached out to Aubrey Huff to let him know that he will not be included in the upcoming 2010 World Series Championship reunion. Our decision is not at all a reflection on his political views, but is based on the fact that Aubrey has made multiple comments on social media that are unacceptable and run counter to the values of our organization. While we appreciate the many contributions that Aubrey made to the 2010 championship season, we stand by our decision.”
