On Wednesday afternoon, Seattle Post-Intelligencer reporter Stephen Cohen shared an interesting exchange he had with former Mariners All-Star Bret Boone.

For reasons unclear, Boone had sent Cohen a series of unprompted direct messages, joking about sexual harassment, which the reporter screen-shotted and shared.

“I got sexually harassed twice today. The Starbucks girl smiled at me and the woman at Rite Aid flirted with me. I’m getting a lawyer. Unacceptable,” Boone wrote, albeit with fewer spaces between his words.

When Cohen asked why Boone, a three-time All-Star who spent seven seasons with the Mariners, had reached out to him, the former second baseman responded that he was “sick of all the liberal bs.”

Former Seattle Mariners second baseman Bret Boone apologized Wednesday for making light of sexual harassment in a message to a reporter.

Hacking attempt!

Obviously, Boone comparing smiling baristas with the type of serious, threatening conduct dominating the news drew a fair amount of outrage. A few hours later, he apologized in a more accurately punctuated statement.

“All, there are zero excuses for what I said earlier,” Boone wrote. “None. It was 100% wrong. It was offensive.”

So why the extremely sudden change of heart? We can’t know for sure, but it’s at least worth noting that Boone’s brother Aaron is one of six known candidates for the Yankees’ managerial job. And if you think Bret’s offensive comment couldn’t possibly affect Aaron’s job prospects, consider that the New York Post wrote up the story Wednesday under the headline, “Brother of Yankees managerial candidate mocks sexual misconduct.”

  Here's what Charlie Rose said about sexual harassment before he was fired for it The host of "CBS This Morning" has been fired by the network following allegations of sexual misconduct. That's what Charlie Rose asked New York Times reporter Jodi Kantor on October 20, in a "CBS This Morning" segment about the Harvey Weinstein scandal. Now, Rose himself is out as a morning host after facing sexual harassment allegations of his own.

Aaron, for his part, appears to be doing some damage control. When a fan on Twitter said he “bet” Aaron shared Bret’s views on sexual harassment, Aaron responded, “Then you bet wrong.”

The Yankees probably won’t hold Aaron’s idiot brother against him as they pick their next manager, but the two Boones are probably in for an awkward phone call regardless.
