Celebrities took aim at embattled and reviled baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez, who was just suspended by Major League Baseball for a record 211 games, but is allowed to continue playing while he appeals the decision.
A-Rod and 12 other players were banned from baseball for at least 50 games for their connection to illicit performance-enhancing drugs and the Miami-based Biogenesis Lab in Miami, which is now defunct. A-Rod is the only player of the 13 who is appealing the suspension and he was the object of full-throated boos when his New York Yankees played the Chicago White Sox in the Windy City on Monday, Aug. 5.
The fans were not alone in their denunciation of the beleaguered Rodriguez. Take a look at what celebs had to say about A-Rod on Twitter.
Why is #ARod allowed to play tonight? Biggest drugs cheat in baseball history, and repeat offender. Ridiculous.
