Wiz Khalifa’s Weed Gesture During First Pitch at Baseball Game Has MLB Upset



Quote:
Wiz Khalifa has drawn the ire of Major League Baseball over a gesture he made while throwing the first pitch at the Pittsburgh Pirates’ final home game.

The Taylor Gang head honcho was given the honor of throwing the first pitch at his hometown team’s game versus the Baltimore Orioles at PNC Park. Wizzle trotted out to the mound donning a shirt the read “Legalize It.” He celebrated his accomplishment by pretending to smoke a joint.

Well, not everyone was cool with Wiz’s high-minded way of thinking. Some who saw it took notice on social media. “Hopefully this is not the family friendly experience/message the @pirates wanted to send the kids at the final home game,” Pittsburgh meteorologist Jeff Verszyla noted on Twitter. Apparently, the League was not to keen on the idea of Wiz pretending to partake in an illegal and banned substance in front everyone in attendance.

When you let your dog come to your party, don't be surprised when it licks itself in the middle of the room, right ? Lowlife's gonna lowlife.

I know he’s a rapper and apparently loves weed, but I have no idea who this guy is. Pretty funny everyone is freaking out though.

Who is freaking out? Mentioning that it is inappropriate isn't freaking out.

Maybe people in Yappi's article were freaking out ? Didn't read.


Nobody in here's freaking out, or even surprised. You're right there.

A. this is why you don't allow people like this to throw out the first pitch
B. if the way he threw his pitch is evidence of how you throw when you smoke pot, that may be a great deterrent. Dude bounced the ball about 55 feet in front of the right handed batter's box. I can only assume he's never played baseball in his life.

"We promote the use of a deadly substance and even sell it at every game. But that weed man, that's where we draw the line."

Baseball is also the sport where no one has unanimously been voted into the HOF, has unwritten rules that haven't been applicable in 40 years, and has been the only league to utterly fail at appealing to anyone under 50. So I'm not surprised a nonviolent hand gesture has some fans upset.

Meanwhile NFL and NBA have both came out and said they are starting to look into medicinal marijuana for pain relief instead of opioids.
