Atlanta Braves fans don't respond well to GLAAD Spirit Day Facebook Post

In honor of GLAAD Spirit Day, Major League Baseball teams joined the fight against bullying of LGBT youth by sending out messages on social media. Unfortunately, there were some insensitive people that decided to voice their opinions and it really was noticeable on the Atlanta Braves Facebook page.

Numerous fans said that they would boycott the team or simply made ignorant remarks against the fight to stop bullying, and it is really troubling to see the lack of acceptance that remains in the nation today.

Here is how the responses to the Braves Facebook post came in, via Deadspin.com:

It is always disheartening to see a lack of progression from people in today’s world, but it is the harsh reality that there is still so far to go.

Hopefully, one day, we can just appreciate people for who they are and not worry about their lifestyle choices and avoid making the American population look like a bunch of blubbering idiots.
