The San Francisco 49ers are upset with their fan who sent a horrible and hate filled message to Cardinals safety Budda Baker. They hated it so much they released a statement.
The Niners are working to ban the person from Niners events for life.
“The San Francisco 49ers unequivocally denounce the racist messages sent to Budda Baker. The individual who sent the messages does not represent the 49ers or the Faithful. Per team policy, we are working to identify this person and will ban them from all 49ers games and events. Incidents like this demonstrate how much work remains to be done to address racism and hate in our society. We remain steadfast in our commitment to that work.”
This all started because Baker tried to make a play on TE George Kittle. There was a pass that was slightly overthrown by Jimmy G. Kittle jumped to catch the ball while Baker dove in to make a tackle. Baker hit Kittle on his knee and it looked awkward. Kittle did not come back the second half, but the hit was not cheap. He was trying to make a play and had his head down.
It is great to see the 49ers respond so quickly, I was wondering what they were going to do.
