I love baseball, and when I was younger, I could cite every statistic about every player worth watching. One of those players was Oakland A’s slugger, Jose Canseco.

Canseco isn’t much of a role model, having done steroids and other less-than-gentlemanlike activities that often left him in hot water. But the guy could hit a baseball.

Canseco made a major blunder Tuesday as he allowed his supersize ego get the best of his Twitter account.

The former home-run king tweeted about the current cases of sexual misconduct that are plaguing Washington, D.C.

Canseco tweeted: “Well I mean I’ve been beaten by women taken advantage of by women and molested by women I never complain but it was kind of a turn-on”

He then launched a second tweet: “I see the difference I guess cuz I was a good-looking guy and these politicians look like a bag of boogers”

He concluded: “These women complaining against sexual misconduct are just racist against ugly men”

It appears Canseco is now out of a job because of his rants.

The former all-star was hired to broadcast the A’s games on NBC in 2017. His contract, which ran out at the end of the season, was up for renewal; but now, he shouldn’t bank on being back in the booth in 2018.

NBC responded to the tweets by stating: “Jose Canseco is no longer an employee with NBC Sports California. His agreement with us ended after the 2017 baseball season. We certainly don’t agree with his comments, which do not reflect the values of our network or our team partner.”

The Athletics also felt the need to distance themselves from its former star’s comments. In a statement via Twitter, the organization said Canseco’s comments “were disappointing,” adding that he was no longer an employee and “his statements do not reflect the values of our organization.”
