Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Anthony Bass has been removed from the team’s roster following an apology he gave last month over a Christian video he shared supporting boycotts against Bud Light and Target.

Bass’s removal from the team’s roster was announced Friday in a social media post from the team’s official account. The post states that Bass had been “designated for assignment,” a term used in Major League Baseball when a player is immediately removed from the team’s lineup.

Bass’s removal comes shortly after it was announced that he would be the catcher for the ceremonial first pitch on Friday night when the Blue Jays play against the Minnesota Twins. Bass would have received the pitch from leZlie Lee Kam, a prominent LGBT activist, according to the Toronto Sun.

Below is the video which Bass, 35, had shared on Instagram, as he shared a passage from the Bible and explained why he believed that Christians should boycott companies pushing LGBTQ-themed merchandise to shoppers.

Bass had been slammed for the video and later made an apology statement, which the Toronto Blue Jays then posted on Twitter.

Conservatives are voicing outrage over the way Bass has been treated.

Commentator Tomi Lahren tweeted, “Anthony Bass needs to play with an American team with values and respect. Period. Screw the Blue Jays! Blatantly discriminatory!!!!!”

And the backlash continues….
