Well, it finally happened.
Former San Francisco Giant Aubrey Huff was suspended from Twitter on Monday, the platform deactivating the account for violating “Twitter Rules.” It’s unclear what the tipping point was, but Huff confirmed the account was suspended in an Instagram post.
“It finally happened! The beta cucks and liberal Karen’s over @twitter hate when people speak the truth or make money if their liberal platforms!” Huff wrote to his 278,000 followers, a number even bigger than the 214K that followed him on Twitter.
“Follow my IG backup @aubreyhuff_official because it’s no doubt coming soon here!” Huff continued. “I consider this a badge of honor! I’ll never stop! Don’t you patriots!!”

Huff being suspended from Twitter won’t come as a shock to those who have been following him for last few years. The former 2010 World Series Champion has courted controversy, seemingly intentionally, and faced harsh criticism for a number of posts since joining the platform.
In November 2019, Huff posted a photo that featured a picture of him holding a paper human silhouette shooting target with multiple bullet holes in it, with the following caption:
“Getting my boys trained up on how to use a gun in the unlikely event Bernie Sanders beats Donald Trump in 2020. In which case knowing how to effectively use a gun under socialism will be a must. By the way most the head shots were theirs. @NRA @WatchChad #2ndAmendment”
In January 2020, he tweeted, and subsequently deleted, what he claimed to be a joke that read:
“We should invade Iran and take their bitches. Persian girls are hot af without the headgear and you know they know how to act right Makes you think” Huff responded with a “joke” about flying over to Iran to kidnap “about 10 each,” and “bring them back here as they fan us and feed us grapes, amongst other things….”
That tweet caught the attention of the San Francisco Giants, who uninvited him from their 2010 World Series reunion at Oracle Park. Huff, unsurprisingly, played it off like he didn’t care.
“It’s my Twitter account,” Huff said. “I’m not going to go and change what I believe in just so I can go get a five-second hat tip. I’m not going to change my opinion so I can go and feel validated.”
