A woman went to a Brewers game this week wearing a Ryan Braun t-shirt, but one with a twist – she added the letters F and D so her jersey read FRAUD. Get it? Days after Milwaukee star Ryan Braun was exposed as a lying fraud, this woman – Karen Eidem – was reacting to the news.
Security immediately singled her out and made her turn her t-shirt inside out. If she didn’t, she was getting ejected from the park.
So she turned the t-shirt inside out.
Naturally, Eidem went to the media afterward, and the Brewers were then forced to release a ‘we messed up’ statement, via NBC 4 in Milwaukee:
“In this case, the fan absolutely should have been able to wear the jersey without any intervention by our staff. We welcome the opportunity for fans to express their opinions. The only circumstances that would warrant us intervening is if someone were to display a message or item that would be considered offensive to other fans. This is not a case where that line was crossed, and we’re sorry for the inconvenience to her. We will reach out to Ms. Eidem to invite her to another game this year as our guest.”
A job well done, Karen Eidem. I’m 97 percent sure we’ll see A-Fraud gear in New York in the days after Alex Rodriguez is suspended.
