Former Mariner Boone Causes Stir With Harassment Remarks
(AP) — Former Seattle Mariners second baseman Bret Boone caused a stir on social media by making light of sexual harassment in a message to a reporter.
Seattlepi.com reporter Stephen Cohen wrote Wednesday that after he tweeted about his disappointment in the allegations against radio host Garrison Keillor, Boone sent him a direct message on Twitter. Boone wrote that he got sexually harassed “twice today,” when “the Starbucks girl” smiled at him and when a woman at a drug store flirted with him.
Boone further joked that he was getting a lawyer and that the behavior was unacceptable.
Boone said he was tired of people being offended and that the reporter should go back to his politically correct world.
