Guess Twitter got the best of former Altanta Brave and future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones. On June 8 Jones posted the following dumb “JK” (“just kidding”) tweet:
Y’all think if they took all them gators they trap in Fla and La and put them in the Rio Grande, it wud stop the illegals from crossing? Jk

The next day Jones tweeted an apology, typos and all:
I realize that my tweet yest was offensive and distasteful. An attempt at humor was a terrible mistake. Please accept my heartfelt apology!

Sure was a terrible mistake, Chipper, and it is now forever engrained in the eternity of the Internet. Nice going.
It’s probably best to leave the tasteless racist jokes off on Twitter and keep them to yourselves next time, Chipper.
