The former San Francisco Giants player that led his team to two World Series titles continues to strike out on Twitter.
Aubrey Huff tweeted a plan to assist President Donald Trump with American-Iranian relations. He suggested kidnapping Iranian women and detailed how they would serve American men, “amongst other things.”
“Let’s get a flight over and kidnap about 10 each. We can bring them back here as they fan us and feed us grapes, amongst other things..” he tweeted, along with a devil emoji.
One can only logically conclude that Huff is suggesting American men fly over to Iran to the kidnap and rape Iranian women.
Many online quickly slammed the 43-year-old father and called him out for his sadistic and misogynistic statements.
“There is something deeply wrong with you,” Julie DiCaro tweeted.
There is something deeply wrong with you.

Twitter user @Browtweaten pointed out that the “stupid fucking shitbag” actually described human trafficking.

Many San Francisco fans even suggested they will be boycotting all of his merchandise and any games he will attend.
“I never want this individual ever included in anything related to the franchise, and I’m sure I’m not the only fan to feel this way,” Twitter user @theroodhimself wrote, addressing the San Francisco Giants.
@SFGiants I never want this individual ever included in anything related to the franchise, and I’m sure I’m not the only fan to feel this way.

Another addressed the Baltimore Orioles, a different team Huff played for.
“I come to your ballpark a lot. If you ever invite him to anything ever, you will never again receive one cent of my $. I have a lot of friends who are fans of your team. And I buy them gifts. So if you think I’m just talking tix & concessions…NOPE!” Twitter user @1912Fenway wrote.
Same to the @Orioles. I come to your ballpark a lot. If you ever invite him to anything ever, you will never again receive one cent of my $. I have a lot of friends who are fans of your team. And I buy them gifts. So if you think I'm just talking tix & concessions…NOPE!

Huff later walked back the gruesome statements in another tweet, which included a GIF of an animated penguin pointing to an “it was a joke” sticker. The caption also clarified his supposed intended meaning of the original tweet. He claimed he would be rescuing the Iranian women, and they would, in turn, shower him with gratitude.
“Does nobody have a sense of humor anymore!? The way Iranian women are treated over there I simply wanted 2 say I’d go there 2 them & bring them back 2 the states,” he wrote. “And they would be so thankful 2 escape that hell that they’d fan me & feed me grapes. Never said rape!”

Many did not accept Huff’s half-apology or buy his explanation.
“Nice try. You stepped in it, pure & simple,” Twitter user @PortugeseMamaC wrote, along with a facepalm emoji.
Nice try. You stepped in it, pure & simple. 🤦

Another called on @TwitterSupport to “put this man out of his misery and ban him from the platform.”
“It would be the most compassionate thing they could possibly do for him at this point,” Twitter user @mom2yahoos stated, referring to Huff’s previous Twitter faux-pas.
In late November of 2019, Huff similarily received backlash for writing a series of misogynistic tweets.
“I believe n marriage the way it was in the old days when women had pride n being a stay at home mom & making sure her man is satisfied providing for the family, ” he pontificated. “Marriage has become a biz 4 women looking 2 get rich off a successful man.”
