Aubrey Huff Slams 'Liberal Karens' After His Twitter Account Is Suspended

Former MLB star Aubrey Huff's Twitter account has been suspended, the sportsman revealed on Monday night.

The two-time World Series champion, 44, took to Instagram to share a screenshot of a notification showing that the account is no longer available, expressing a few choice words for those who he blames for the suspension.

He wrote: "It finally happened! The beta cucks and liberal Karen's over @twitter hate when people speak the truth or make money if their liberal platforms!"

In preparation for facing a similar fate on his Instagram account, Huff advised his 278,000 followers: "Follow my IG backup @aubreyhuff_official because it's no doubt coming soon here! I consider this a badge of honor! I'll never stop! Don't you patriots!!"

He rounded out his message with a series of hashtags that read: "#banned #twitter #freedom #freespeech #america #fight #dontquit."

In the hours leading up to his Twitter ban, Huff took to Instagram to share footage of himself attending an anti-vaccination rally.

Huff is an avid support of former President Donald Trump—who himself was banned from Twitter following the storming of the U.S. Capitol on January 6.

Through his Twitter account, Huff regularly stoked the fires of controversy with a series of controversial posts.

In June, he criticized lockdown measures implemented due to COVID-19, claiming he would "rather die of coronavirus than wear a mask and live in fear."

Back in November 2019, he posted a picture of himself holding a shooting target with holes, suggesting he was teaching his sons how to use a gun in the "unlikely event" Bernie Sanders beat Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential elections.

In January 2020, he posted a tweet suggesting people should kidnap Iranian women, writing: "Let's get a flight over and kidnap about 10 each. We can bring them back here as they fan us and feed us grapes, amongst other things."

He subsequently deleted the tweet, claiming it was meant as a joke to highlight the difficult conditions he perceived Iranian women to be living under.

Despite this claim, he soon faced backlash, with the San Francisco Giants confirming they would not invite Huff to a reunion of their 2010 World Series-winning team due to the comments he had made on social media.

Following the storming of the U.S. Capitol in January, Huff went against the tide of widespread condemnation as he tweeted: "These are not just Trump supporters. These are p***** off Americans who are sick of Republicans, & Democrats taking away our precious freedoms!

"We shouldn't be surprised. When you [sic] a sleeping Lion don't be surprised when he attacks."

More recently, Huff branded Bruce Springsteen a "p****" in June, after it was announced fans would need to be vaccinated to attend his Broadway show.

In a snippet of a Sky News Australia broadcast, which was shared on Twitter, the anchor announced: "Bruce Springsteen will return to Broadway as the first show is set to open since March last year. But, it's happening on one condition, attendees will be required to show proof of a COVID vaccine."

Commenting on the news, Huff tweeted: "Makes song about being born in the USA. Doesn't believe in freedom. What a p****!"
