Mo’ne-bashing gets star player dropped


Little League World Series superstar Mo’ne Davis keeps making headlines, but they can’t all be good.

A local baseball star was dropped from Bloomsburg University’s baseball team after he mocked  Mo’ne on Twitter, calling her a “slut.”

“Disney is making a movie about Mo’ne Davis? WHAT A JOKE. That slut got rocked by Nevada” tweeted Joey Casselberry, a first baseman and Montgomery County native, on Friday.

“Bloomsburg Univ is deeply saddened by what was written about #MoneDavis by one of our student-athletes. His words do not represent us,” the Bloomsburg Huskies tweeted on Saturday. “We take matter very seriously; addressed the issue with the student-athlete (who has been dismissed from team), coach, and the team.”

Casselberry, a former star player at Methacton High School, apologized for the tweet and said Mo’ne was an ‘inspiration’ before deactivating his account.
