To all social media users and baseball fans,

Recently, Anti-Semitic, Anti-Asian, and otherwise racist content has surfaced from James Vincent Michael O'Brien, also known as “Jomboy,” along with other members of his media team.

I am appalled that this isn’t being discussed by other media corporations and baseball writers who have praised Jomboy’s work in the past, especially when you consider the heightened importance of equality and respect in today’s world. 

Below are the disgusting instances I am referencing. 

1. Anti-Semitic remarks in the following video referencing a common discrimination against Jewish people‘s love for “coins.” Tweet

2. Kyle Kondor, a Jomboy Media employee claiming to use the N-word and “act black” Tweet

Jomboy doubled down on this employee’s behavior, stating it was “nuanced” and “handled internally,” also stating that the public isn’t “entitled to every HR meeting the company has.” Referenced Thread

3. Anti-Asian insults by Jomboy shown here: Tweet

Marcus Stroman, a Mets pitcher with an unfortunate history of being racially targeted, also tweeted his concerns in a thread discussing the controversy: Tweet

This racist, bigoted behavior is unacceptable. Jomboy Media has built a following of millions of fans, and they continue to brush all of this off as if it we will all forget about it. I am calling on all baseball players, fans, media, and any other decent people out there to hold Jomboy and his team accountable for these events. 

Thank you.
