Over the weekend, the world beyond baseball was pretty intense. Thousands of people showed up around the country to spontaneously protest new executive orders by President Trump they believe are unjust, and wouldn’t you know it, a few baseball players have an opinion on that.

One in particular was Aubrey Huff, a former utility guy who played 13 years in the big leagues, perhaps most notably with the San Francisco Giants during their 2010 and 2012 title runs. Huff had a lot to say, but one of his tweets inspired quite a reaction.

Huff is referring to not only the demonstrations at airports over the weekend, but the Women’s March on Jan. 21, which was a Saturday. Note that the demonstrations he’s referring to were on the weekend, a time when a number of people don’t typically work.

Enter Twitter, where he was roasted for that tweet like there’s no tomorrow. People were there to remind him about a weekday parade that he and thousands of his friends were involved in.

One person decided to educate Huff about what weekends mean.

And others realized that Huff needed to be educated about how Curt Flood fought for free agency, and how other players protested for their rights, which he definitely benefitted from.

Some people were on the ball with important Aubrey Huff facts.

And big ups to the genius who put together this tweet, which juxtaposes Huff’s tweet with an Instagram post featuring his former teammate Tim Lincecum at the Women’s March.

It’s absolutely fine for baseball players to have opinions and share them on Twitter, but if they’re going to do that, they need to be ready for what it brings upon them. Especially if the opinion they’re going to share is ignorant about what a weekend is. Matt Garza learned that the hard way a few weeks ago when he tweeted something relatively uneducated about birth control.

Huff spent a little while responding to tweets, but eventually stopped because he either went to play in a vault of money that he has because of Curt Flood, or because he was getting owned so hard that it probably wasn’t fun for him anymore. Either one.
