On Wednesday, Atlanta Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell apologized for making anti-gay slurs and gestures at fans including two nine-year-old girls during a game on Saturday, April 23.
“I am deeply sorry that I responded to the heckling fans in San Francisco on Saturday,” he said in a statement. “I apologise to everyone for my actions.”
All and all, a pretty typical “Athlete does something stupid and says he is sorry” narrative (although he should still be fired).
Except for one aspect: Gloria Allred.
McDowell’s apology came after the celebrity lawyer held a press conference on Wednesday during which she held up a baseball bat and had Justin Quinn, the father of the girls, use his pointer finger and thumb to demonstrate the exact motions McDowell made.
It is a completely surreal moment.
