Jose Canseco's freakish Twitter rant could see him sacked

Postado Dezembro 13, 2017

Amid the day's tumultuous news focused on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's election and numerous accusations of sexual misconduct, the former professional baseball player for the Oakland Athletics, Texas Rangers and others has gone on a freakish Twitter rant against the national discussion of sexual harassment.

"Well I mean I've been beaten by women taken advantage of by women and molested by women I never complain but it was kind of a turn-on", he said.

After the Athletics' statement, Canseco told the San Francisco Chronicle the tweets were "riddles" and suggestion everyone pay attention to Donald Trump instead.

But the Twitter rants cost the former A's hitter his job as a studio analyst on the team's telecasts after just one season.

"Jose Canseco is no longer an employee with NBC Sports California". "His agreement with us ended after the 2017 season". "We certainly dont agree with his comments, which do not reflect the values of our network or our team partner".

The former A's slugger worked for NBC Sports California last season as an on-air analyst for "A's Pregame Live" and "A's Postgame Live".

The former Major League Baseball star didn't stop there. Therefore, the Athletics felt the need Tuesday to issue a statement saying they were "disappointed" with Canseco's statement while emphasizing that the former outfielder does not work for the team.

Tuesday's Twitter rant comes at a time when sexual harassment has become nearly a daily topic of discussion, as politicians, media icons and even renowned journalists have faced the chopping block over allegations.
