In an effort to address the problem of blackhawk players getting involved in protests, the Arizona Diamondbacks have released a statement on its website that reads in part: “The Arizona Diamondback baseball team has an unwavering commitment to free speech and free association.
We do not condone, support, condone, condone any actions or words of others.
The actions of the Diamondbacks’ players and fans do not reflect our values.
We have worked with the team, and our management team, to address this issue and have zero tolerance for any actions that could undermine or undermine our fans.
This includes actions by any player or fan that are perceived to be racially insensitive or discriminatory.”
Diamondbacks fans will be pleased to know that the team has not had to resort to using the team’s Twitter account, which has been criticized for its racist, anti-Semitic, and anti-Black sentiments.
A representative for the team told ESPN.com that the tweet was taken down for violating Twitter’s terms of service.
