Josh Hader's All-Star Game controversy shows how online ghosts will haunt us
Jul 21, 2018 1:00 AM - The moment was like bit of tragic theater: Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader was on the mound at the All-Star Game at Nationals Park. As he pitched, his reputation was being dismantled, piece by piece, by his own vile Twitter history. Hader tweeted the N-word multiple times 7 years ago, when he was 17. One tweet contained an allusion to white power. He tweeted derogatory things about women. Over an eight month period, Hader appeared to use his Twitter account as a public outlet for some of the worst thoughts in his mind.
