Newly acquired NY Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard tweets anti-gay slur

An anti-gay slur was recently tweeted, and subsequently deleted, from a Twitter account belonging to one of the prospects the Mets acquired from Toronto for R.A. Dickey.

Righthanded pitcher Noah Syndergaard, 20, acquired along with catcher Travis d’Arnaud in the deal that sent the Cy Young Award winner to the Blue Jays, tweets from the account @Noahsyndergaard.

On Dec. 9, this tweet appeared from that account: “@DMarze89 nice crocs f—lol”

The tweet no longer appears on the timeline for the account.

A Mets spokesman said that the team was looking into the matter. The full context of the tweet was not immediately clear; Syndergaard might be available on a conference call introducing him and d’Arnaud on Tuesday.

Thanks to Ben.

If all you know about somebody is that they were hispanic and arrested for B + E, it is insulting to Mexicans to just label them Mexicans. I guess an exception could be made if you were in some Texas border town where the majority of Spanish-speakers are actually Mexican.
