Anthony Bass shared a video that used a passage from the Bible to justify boycotting companies that promote the LGBTQ community.
Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass has apologized for sharing a post on social media that claimed to provide Biblical reasons for boycotting companies that support the LGBTQ community.
"I made a post that was hurtful to the Pride community, which includes friends of mine, close family members of mine, and I am truly sorry for that," Bass said on Tuesday.
He added that he apologized to his teammates and is utilizing team resources to "make better decisions moving forward."
The video Bass shared was created by Ryan Miller. In the video, Miller reads a passage from the Bible that he says justifies boycotting companies like Target, which launches a Pride collection every year in celebration of LGBTQ individuals.
