As a camera zoomed in on Strowman, Brainly referred to a former Mets Hall of Famer when he said, “Pretty sure this is the durag that Tom Seaver used to wear when pitching for the Mets.”

Whether it was a poor attempt at a joke or something, many people on Twitter captured Brainly’s words. After the Mets’ 6-5 loss to Arizona, Strowman, an outspoken leader on race and social justice, retweeted some of the criticism of Brenley’s remarks. strawman then tweeted, “On and on …. through all adversity and racist undertones. The climb continues through all!”

Strowman, who is black, said on twitter That “the media will somehow turn it against me,” should he criticize Brainly.

Brainly issued a statement on Wednesday apologizing for what he said and indicated that he would undergo sensitivity training.

“During last night’s game, I made a poor attempt at humor that was insensitive and inaccurate. I apologize to Marcus Strowman and have reached out directly to share those thoughts. To be able to continue to learn from my mistakes.”
