Brandon Phillips went off on a Husky reporter over some things he had written about him a couple of days ago and it was forgotten almost immediately after it happened.
That was until the The National Association for the Advancement of Fat Acceptance (this is a real organization) decided to speak on it.
The NAAFA is hungry for an apology … and also probably pizza … and meatballs … telling TMZ, “[Brandon's] poor choice of words indicates that he may have missed the fact that verbal aggression and threats are bullying.”
NAAFA is also pissed at Baker for “allowing his player to bully a reporter during this press conference. There are no innocent bystanders.”
The org. says they’re especially upset because the Reds participate in anti-bullying campaigns — “Putting on an anti-bullying face then allowing the blasting of a reporter’s body-size is not acceptable.”
