A's Pitcher Brandon McCarthy Tweets Against Homophobia
- — Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32)Thu, Apr 19 2012 01:50:50They put two guys on the 'Kiss Cam' tonight. What hilarity!! (by hilarity I mean offensive homophobia). Enough with this stupid trend.
- The Tweet drew praise from some.

- — Brandon McCarthy (@BMcCarthy32)Thu, Apr 19 2012 02:15:17@speefmoney so that's why they should stop doing it. Plus, it's cheap shitty comedy so it sucks on that level as well.
- Of course, while McCarthy's Tweet has made him a popular topic of conversation right now, it is his play on the field that will really determine how he's thought of by A's fans.
