Aubrey Huff, former star of the San Francisco Giants is not welcome at the club’s 2010 World Series championship reunion because of his politically-incorrect remarks on Twitter.

“Earlier this month, we reached out to Aubrey Huff to let him know that he will not be included in the upcoming 2010 World Series Championship reunion,” the Giants said in a statement sent to the Chronicle and The Athletic. “Aubrey has made multiple comments on social media that are unacceptable and run counter to the values of our organization. While we appreciate the many contributions that Aubrey made to the 2010 championship season, we stand by our decision.”

When The Athletic reached out for comment, Huff said he was “Quite frankly, shocked. Disappointed. If it wasn’t for me, they wouldn’t be having a reunion. But if they want to stick with their politically correct, progressive [expletive], that’s fine.”

Huff, who in 2010 led his team to their first World Series win since 1954 by batting .290/.385/.506 with 26 home runs in 157 games for the Giants that season, and also led his team to the 2012 World Series victory, posted a lengthy response on Twitter.

“Three weeks ago I had a call with Larry Baer CEO of the San Francisco Giants. He took me by surprise when he told me I was unanimously voted against attending the 2010 Giants World Series Championship reunion,” Huff’s post reads.

“When I asked why I wasn’t invited he told that the board didn’t approve of my Twitter posts and my political support of Donald Trump.”

“We live in a country that is under attack. Society is desperately trying to take away our First Amendment, our freedom of speech and our freedom of political association,” Huff continued.

Huff, who describes himself as “a critically acclaimed stick figure artist, who’s politically incorrect,” has made some provocative statements on social media over the years.
