Aubrey Huff surely has a knack for controversy.
The former Major League Baseball player created a frenzy on social media Sunday when he took issue with men’s fashion in the 21st century.
Huff, a two-time World Series champion with the San Francisco Giants, posted a photo of LeBron James in a suit jacket and suit shorts carrying a purse or men’s bag.
He wrote: “Young men this is not how a man is supposed to dress. Carrying a purse is not cool. I suppose dressing like this makes it easier to kneel.”

Among the many people who blasted him for his comments was former ESPN personality Jemele Hill and Colin Kaepernick’s mom.
Pull up on LeBron with that same energy then, since you don’t think he’s masculine. https://t.co/5mCw2t7J29

Poor pathetic Aubrey is desperately seeking attention.

Last month, he ranted about California Gov. Gavin Newsom deciding to put the state on lockdown again due to a spike in coronavirus cases.
“I would rather take my chances with the coronavirus – and, may I remind you, it has a 99.8 percent survival rate – than to end up on the f–king street no longer able to provide for my family.”
Huff added that masks are “mind-control devices” and people who wear them are “sheep.”
“[email protected] shut California down again,” Huff wrote on Twitter. “It’s time to take off the mind control devices & fight for your family, your business, & your freedom!”
