The internet wasn’t a safe space for the Diamondbacks yesterday afternoon.
Although the team beat the Dodgers 4-2 at Dodger Stadium, the Twittersphere paid no attention to that. No, instead the team was lambasted for its new road uniforms.
First, the team thought they’d be all cute by trying to make “Teal Tuesday” a thing.
Needles to say, it doesn’t sound like Teal Tuesday is going to be a thing. The jerseys drew the ire of baseball fans all accross Twitter. From trolls to verified accounts, not too many people were impressed by the jerseys.
As if Twitter trolls hating was bad enough, the real knockout blow came when Rob Lowe voiced his distaste for the jerseys. Based on this reaction, these jerseys are probably more fit for “Peaked in High School Rob Lowe” or “Scrawny Arms Rob Lowe.”
It’s safe to say that these jerseys are not the most popular. But hey, the Diamondbacks are undefeated when they wear them. So maybe “Teal Tuesday” isn’t so bad after all.
