A Bloomsburg (Pa.) University baseball player was dismissed from the team on Saturday after posting an offensive tweet about Little League World Series star Mo’ne Davis.

The tweet was authored by Joey Casselberry, a junior first baseman who was the team’s second-leading hitter at the time of his dismissal. It was in reference to Disney Channel’s recent announcement of a movie based on Mo’ne Davis’ remarkable story. And it was unquestionably offensive, to the point where Bloomsburg’s athletic department had no choice but to act as it did.

The university wasted no time reaching a decision on Casselberry’s status. A formal announcement was made via Twitter early Saturday evening.

Casselberry’s Twitter account has since been deleted, but the damage here is already done.
