Twitter User Thinks ‘KKK’ Is Racist, Doesn’t Realize It Refers to Strikeouts

This woman is not on the (fast) ball.

Twitter user @Sania90 has taken a lot of heat after posting a tweet (since deleted) criticizing the strikeout count at a recent Braves game — you know, the “K” signs fans post to keep tabs on how many punchouts the pitcher has recorded. Poor Sania noticed there were three Ks and mistakenly assumed the KKK that was on display was a show of support for the Ku Klux Klan.

See the screenshot below.

As you might imagine, the Twittersphere jumped all over Sania the way a home run hitter jumps on a curveball that doesn’t break.
