Braves play by play man Chip Caray saw a tweet in poor taste emerge from his account last night with regard to President Obama and the Aurora shootings. Caray claimed his account was hacked, but does the evidence point to a hack job?)
Braves play by play announcer Chip Caray is an outspoken critic of President Obama on his Twitter account (in addition to his inane commentary on baesball and life), and tonight, he made a pretty big booboo. In response to a tweet from the hugely popular @BreakingNews account quoting Obama in a speech about the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado, Caray used the tragedy to take yet another shot at Obama. But considering the situation that he used to push his agenda forward.... that's a little much.
Of course, Caray immediately started crying about being hacked, despite the fact that he had tweeted something juuuuuuust before the offending tweet went out on the exact same device he was using... yeah, about that. Of course, this called up memories of Caray's most infamous (and awful) call as an announcer.no comments
