Giants Facebook Page Hacked, Calls Chick-fil-A President "Asshole"

We can only imagine how delighted San Franciscans were yesterday when they learned their hometown baseball team had weighed in on the whole Chick-fil-A flap with this pointed post:

Although we wouldn't put it past the Giants to pop off in defense of gays, this Facebook message, which, by the way got eight likes in a matter of seconds, was nothing but a bored hacker at work.


According to sports blogs, the Giants were one of many baseball teams whose Facebook accounts were hacked this week. It all started when the Yankees posted this very surprising message about team captain Derek Jeter.

We regret to inform our fans that Derek Jeter will miss the rest of the season with sexual reassignment surgery. He promises to come back stronger than ever in 2013 as Minnie Mantelz.

All the posts, some funny and some not so funny, have since been deleted, but fortunately, you can still read screenshots of them here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
