Rob Lowe has pissed off fans of the Kansas City Royals. And since it seems everyone in the U.S. (including California) is cheering for the Royals to beat San Francisco to win the 2014 World Series, the law of transitivity would say that Lowe has, in fact, pissed off all of America.
How did a man with such chiseled features and a dazzling smile anger baseball-watching America? Easily, in less than 140 characters.
Lowe betrayed the loyal Royals with a sub-tweet about being ready for the "big stage." It was only four minutes before angry Royals caused Lowe to issue an excuse:
Seeing as Rob Lowe doesn't believe the Royals belong in the limelight, can we ban his dumb DirectTV commercials from KC airwaves?— Michael Kogler (@KCsportsaholic) October 22, 2014
I liked @RobLowe until I saw him tweet that asshole statement about the Royals. Gtfo.— Rita Damron (@Radamron) October 22, 2014
@RobLowe You are the worst.— Luke Schnoebelen (@schneby) October 22, 2014
Rob Lowe is stuck doing commercials, but the Royals aren't meant for "the big stage"...— DL Young (@DLYoungg) October 22, 2014
Lowe's tweet has inspired some delightful new Hunter Pence signs. (Did you know Pence, who plays for the Giants, only just realized the Royals are a Missouri, not a Kansas, team?)
@RobLowe ouch. That is such an un-Chris Trager thing to say.— Annie Dell'Aria (@annerD23) October 22, 2014
So yes, Lowe threw a little shade at the Royals, but even he admits that losing Game 1 doesn't mean Kansas City isn't destined for a World Series win: @StLouisLindsay. E-mail the author at Lindsay.Toler@RiverfrontTimes.com.
Hunter Pence thinks creepy Rob Lowe would be a better pitcher than James Shields. #Royals— Andew W. Buck (@AndrewWBuck) October 22, 2014
