Pitcher upset by gay-mocking on stadium ‘kiss cam’


18 mins ago

Oakland A’s pitcher Brandon McCarthy doesn’t find the payoff of the “kiss cam” to be very funny. Referring to the stadium gimmick where couples are shown on the jumbo screen and encouraged to smooch, McCarthy tweeted, “They put two guys on the ‘Kiss Cam’ tonight. What hilarity!! (by hilarity I mean offensive homophobia). Enough with this stupid trend.” McCarthy’s tweet is picking up attention, and many people have said they’re glad that he is supporting the LGBT community. McCarthy, who is 28 and married (to a woman), said it is hypocritical for the MLB to film “It Gets Better” videos while using the gay-mocking “kiss cam.”
