With the whole Jim Breuer/Mets/Barstool/Drug Cartel supposedly being racist controversy, has any one checked in with Wilson Ramos? I mean he was kidnapped in his home country of Venezuela in 2011. Has anybody checked in?
Here is the clip everyone is up in arms about.
Today on @KFCradio, @JimBreuer has figured out what’s going on with the Edwin Diaz situation. It’s not his slider. It’s not his BAPIP.— KFC (@KFCBarstool) August 8, 2019
It’s the drug cartel. #LFGM🍎 pic.twitter.com/b8iKXADCQh
I wonder how close to home this hit the Mets Catcher. He was kidnapped and held for ransom. I don't know if they were any drug cartel ties to this crime or if were folks that just wanted to make a quick buck off of someones hard work and basically by threatening someones life. Just like Jim implied that was going on with Diaz and Familia.

I wonder how funny Wilson Ramos finds this. Does he think it is a harmless joke? I bet being kidnapped is constantly in the back of his head and pops out when it is least expected. Did Jim even remember that this happened to Ramos?
Just look at all he crap that is going on with the criminals and MLB ball players and their families with these criminals. This is crazy. I find a lot of Jim's stuff funny. Some of it I find hacky. The one thing that is being lost in this world lately is comedy is supposed to make you laugh and also to think. Some jokes hit, some miss. I think if Jim didn't do the voices and he made this joke it might have not gone the way it had. Folks hate Barstool so they are looking for any excuse to go after them. Folks are also tired of Jim Breuer and other comedians popping up when the Mets are relevant again. It really was a perfect storm for this to happen. Do I think Breuer is racist. I know people who know him and they all he say the same thing, he isn't. Is his I grew up in LI in the 1970's act aging well?
Doesn't seem it.
It's all just so fascinating.
