Mo’Ne Davis, little league star from Philadelphia, was the first girl to earn a win and pitch a shutout in the LLWS last summer, and appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
Joey Casselberry has been released from his college baseball team (Bloomsburg University) after tweeting an ignorant tweet about child star 14-year-old Mo’Ne Davis on Twitter.com over the weekend.
The user account belonging to Joey Casselberry had been deactivated as of Saturday night, but screen captures of the tweet show that the player used an offensive word while criticizing news that a Disney Channel movie was being made about Davis. Casselberry made reference to Davis’ loss to Nevada during the LLWS. People need to remember sometimes think before you tweet.
