It’s been a minute since former Chicago Cub Sammy Sosa debuted his bleached skin at a music awards show in 2009. Since then, the world hasn’t seen much of Sosa (not even when the Cubs won the World Series in 2016), but it seems he was extremely busy … lightening his skin even more.
This week, Sosa appeared briefly during ESPN’s coverage of the home run derby. He wasn’t remembered for his wisdom of the sport of baseball. Instead, his obviously bleached face drew comparisons to Pepto Bismal and more on Twitter. Some were even concerned with Sosa’s mental state since he seems to hate the dark skin DNA gave him.
Here are the best Twitter reactions to Sammy Sosa’s drastically lighter skin.
They need to do a #30for30 on Sammy Sosa and not even talk about baseball.
