Jon Heyman of the New York Post chose the wrong platform to share some too-early news on Aaron Judge, and he shared so quickly that he made a massive typo.
Jon Heyman is a trusted source in MLB, often sharing big news that is accurate and timely. This time around, he jumped onto the wrong platform, Twitter, to share that Aaron Judge is joining the San Francisco Giants.
While that’s usually good news, it backfired as it wasn’t true and he made a massive typo, renaming Aaron ‘Arson.’
He later shared that he jumped the gun and the Giants haven’t heard from Judge quite yet.
Of course, Twitter users took the opportunity to turn it into a complete meme, as they do best. The results are truly comedic gold.
