If you think I’m worked up, you obviously didn’t see Kate Upton’s response to it; someone messed with her man and she wasn’t having any of it, reaching for her phone and thumbing out a tweet for the ages: “hey @mlb, I thought I was the only person allowed to bleep @justinverlander?! What 2 writers didn’t have him on their ballot?”
Straight freaking fire, Kate!!
Damn, Kate!! Keeping it 100! Check that, keeping it 2.27 million!
Because that’s how many followers got that lava poured all over their feed last night. An all-time great tweet. No wonder it nearly broke the internet. She summed it up perfectly. I mean sure, some of her facts were off, but her take was dead on.
And no, don’t go looking to lump her in with other disgruntled significant others that take a blow torch to twitter to take up for their men, like Kaela Carpenter, Miko Grimes, etc. Upton didn’t threaten to castrate the writers.
And when you’re right, you’re right and she has a very good argument here.
I think he should have won, but I don’t have a huge problem with him not winning. But I do have a huge problem with two guys leaving him off the ballot altogether. If you two dopes don’t want or care about your vote. Give it to someone who does.
I have to admit, at first glance of the tweet, I wanted to call fake. I mean, Kate is cool. Really cool. A fellow Breeders’ Cup ambassador. But that just smacks of a tweet that some faux account would blast out. But then I saw it, the little blue check that signified it is, in fact, a verified account, and that really was Kate Upton who said it, thus making her the undisputed queen of the internet for right now.
I know this, I have never been as happy to see a blue check next to someone’s name as I was Kate Upton’s after that lava. Because that truly was the very definition of straight fire!!
