X/Twitter loses one of its rightwing keyboard warriors

Former MLB player Aubrey Huff has deleted his Twitter account after being called out for sending a creepy direct message (DM) to a woman and then disparaging her in a tweet. The incident occurred during a heated exchange between 23-year-old Isabella Maria DeLuca and a woman named Rachel Wilson, who goes by the handle Rach4Patriarchy.

Huff commented on the “catfight” between DeLuca and Wilson, tweeting that it was proof that most women today only bring their sexuality to the table. He tagged both women in the now-deleted post and accused them of seeking attention, having crippling debt, having delusional self-worth, and lacking accountability.

DeLuca responded to Huff’s tweet and posted a screenshot of a DM allegedly sent by the former World Series champ. The message, reportedly from Huff’s verified account, read, “Hey beautiful let’s Colab [sic] over cocktails and bad decisions.” The DM was allegedly sent on Christmas.

DeLuca stated that she never responded to the DM. The incident caused a backlash against Huff, leading him to delete his Twitter account.

Aubrey Huff, 47, has been married to his wife, Barbara Heaton, since 2007, and they have two sons together. Huff had a successful career in Major League Baseball, playing for teams like the Tampa Bay Rays, Houston Astros, Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, and San Francisco Giants. He batted .278 and hit 242 home runs during his career.

This is not the first time Huff has faced controversy on social media. In 2021, his Twitter account was suspended for spreading COVID-19 misinformation. Additionally, he has been criticized for making homophobic remarks in the past.

The incident involving Huff serves as another example of the consequences individuals can face for their actions on social media. Inappropriate behavior and offensive comments can quickly lead to public backlash and damage to one’s reputation. It is a reminder for everyone to think before they post and to treat others with respect and decency, both online and offline.
