Mets Player Apologizes and Deletes Photo After Posting Instagram Pic with Donald Trump. Jr.

New York Mets infielder Phillip Evans posted a photo of himself and fellow players shark fishing with Donald Trump Jr.

But Evans later took it down and apologizes after he was slammed by social justice warriors online.

Here’s the photo.

Phillip Evans said this was an accidental photo.

What a weenie.
The New York Post reported:
Infielder Phillip Evans said Saturday he deleted an Instagram picture from the team’s shark fishing outing because of backlash he received. Among those in the picture was Donald Trump Jr., who happened to be at the beach while the Mets were fishing, according to Evans.

“I didn’t intend it to be any kind of political [statement] at all,” Evans said. “I just thought it was another guy jumping into the photo.”

Matt Harvey and manager Mickey Callaway were also in the photo.

“I was just out there fishing with my teammates and [Trump Jr.] just happened to be there with his family, enjoying the same beach we were,” Evans said. “He was just a normal guy, hanging out with his family on the beach.”

Callaway said it was no different than walking into a restaurant and encountering somebody already in there.

“There is no way we can control that,” Callaway said. “I guess I can call the Secret Service and get their schedule and see if we can schedule things around it.”
