Last week, the Disney Channel announced that it would be making a Mo'ne Davis movie called Throw Like Mo. This is awesome, because Mo'ne Davis is awesome. Some people don't agree, however. That's fine; you can not agree. But maybe don't tweet about it. Especially not in an offensive manner and not if you're a baseball player for Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.
The screencap of this tweet is from WNEP 16, which also reported that the blacked-out word was "slut." The account has since been deleted, as has Joey Casselberry.
Bloomsburg Univ is deeply saddened by what was written about #MoneDavis by one of our student-athletes. His words do not represent us.— BU Huskies (@GoBUHuskies) March 21, 2015
We take matter very seriously; addressed the issue with the student-athlete (who has been dismissed from team), coach, and the team.— BU Huskies (@GoBUHuskies) March 21, 2015
Davis appeared on SportsCenter on Monday and asked that Bloomsburg University reinstate Casselberry.
