A retired Atlanta Braves player is desperately trying to backtrack after tweeting that Sandy Hook was a hoax last week.
“So the FBI comes out and confirms that Sandy Hook was a hoax! Where is the outrage?” wrote former third baseman Chipper Jones in a now-deleted tweet. ”What else are we being lied to about? Waco? JFK? Pfff…”
Days later, Jones took to twitter once again to apologize for the tweet.
“My apologies for my Sandy Hook tweet [yesterday]. I had heard something from someone which I thought to be credible and tweeted w/out researching,” he tweeted Saturday, according to The Blaze. “It was irresponsible of me to do that and will not happen again. Please accept my heartfelt apology to those who were hurt or offended.”
The backlash against Jones was swift from angry citizens who pointed out that the FBI has never backed up any conspiracy theory that Sandy Hook was a hoax.
