The Pittsburgh Pirates were reprimanded by Major League Baseball on Thursday after rapper Wiz Khalifa threw out a first pitch Wednesday night.
To clear up any confusion about what “it” could be, Khalifa mimed smoking what the kids call a marijuana cigarette before throwing out the first pitch.
Wiz Khalifa earned the ire of MLB after endorsing marijuana before throwing out a first pitch.
Wiz Khalifa has an album named “Rolling Papers,” and is working on “Rolling Papers 2” currently, so we’re not sure what MLB expected.
Marijuana is prohibited under MLB’s drug programs, but that’s somewhat misleading.
Yes, beer is legal in 50 states and marijuana is not, but it does come off as a little hypocritical by MLB.
