Worst Cardinals Fans Ever: Homophobic, Racist, Offensive Tweets Via @BestFansStLouis

Categories: Cardinals

They walk among us.
Are these the worst "best fans in baseball?"

With baseball season in full swing, we've expressed our joy here at Daily RFT with a roundup of really friggin' excited St. Louisans on Opening Day and some photos of the most die-hard Cardinals fans at Busch Stadium.

But we're all about balance, which brings us to the topic of this post: @BestFansStLouis, the Twitter account that retweets the most vile, awful, horrible comments of frustrated Cardinals fans. A public shaming, if you will.

Racism and homophobia below!

The account, with more than 3,000 followers, retweets awful things that Cardinals fans say -- the slurs and obscenities they direct at the other team or sometimes even at their own team when they are not pleased with a game.

If you're offended by racism, homophobia, bad words or bad spelling -- the account also retweets those upset with that "trader" Pujols! -- look away.

Otherwise, ladies and gentlemen, we present to you to the top nineteen worst tweets of the new season:

19. So Many of These


18. More Horrible Choo Eyes Tweets


17. Racism, Homophobia...and More

HAHAHAHA!!! there are some funny ones, even though they were a little insensitive. Really... who cares? Just being vulgar about anything on Twitter is low class no matter what it's about. They better lock doqwn their account if they're looking for work. Sure, I can't condone the racial stuff... I mean get the frustration and everything, but how about those homo comments? I'm cool with that. Are you sexually off? then expect some blowback.... no, not a dude being blown by another dude while lying on his back. That's just wrong!

You don't think there are people like that in every city, county, and zip code in the nation? It has nothing to do with St. Louis. We don't even know where these people live. They could be Cardinals "fans" that live in Mississippi for all we know.

This has nothing to do with St. Lou. Who know where these people even live.

STL City > STL surrounding areas. Been that way since the civil war. Nothing new.

There are the racists and bigots, and then there are the haughty and pretentious fans commonly associated with the Yanks and the Red Sox fanbase.

The worst are the yankee fans, they're all pretentious or wannabe baseball fans (the reason why they like the Yankess because they don't know about any of the other good teams, like the Cardinals or the Tigers.)

Hmm. We get over 3 million at the gate again and a few classless people is what you report? I guess good news does not sell papers or get eyeballs for advertising revenue?

And then St. Louis disowned the Matt Daus person. And there was much rejoicing.

Is this Riverfront Times or VICE ? I'm starting to get the two confused.

These are probably occasional baseball fans who watch like four games a year. They're everywhere.

Yeah, because we're the only sports town with asshole fans. It's global.

There are idiots everywhere in the world. Some of them even root for the Cardinals...

Stupid to give this more publicity. This has nothing to do with "best fans in baseball." There are racists and bigots in every market in the nation. This is just a story about a few very narrow minded shallow people. Nothing more.

There's a racist and homophobic Cardinals fan? I guess I'm going to have to become a Cubs or a Reds fan from now on!

Sometimes, I wonder if it Poe's Law truly at work with some of these posts.

The riverfront times is reporting how stupid and idiotic people are ? What has the world of news come to ?

I believe and have for the last few years that as the cost of attending the game goes up, the classlessness of the fan also increases! They no longer reflect the "Cardinal Way"and are at the game in their Parents/ Corporate tax deductions( seats)They don't understand or care about the game they only expect to be entertained and that means Beer, Food and a Win! I no longer take my children to Blues game because of this generations inability to speak without the use of the F-Bomb and fighting in the stands after they've chugged a few beers! The Cardinal experience is now attracting the same bunch of Morons!

Bunch of whiney self centered rich whites piece of shit that come only come to the city to be dickheads then complain about how the city is. Stay the fuck down in hillbilly land dumb asses.

I've lived all over the country&I've experienced more selfish,racist&ignorant people in st.louis than anywhere else..

I was a little shocked people actually tweet that sort of nonsense. I think it just shows ignorance and a lack of vocabulary. However I did chuckle a little at the Asian joke, yesterday he missed 2 HR's in just about the same spot.

Thanks, RFT! This needed to be seen. Too much bigotry in St. Louis. It's much more open behind a keyboard.

Why are you giving them extra publicity for being idiots? Report on something worth reading in regards to the Cardinals and maybe more people will read the RFT.

And I thought I had problems when I yell at the TV. Should post some of the old KU/MU rivalry tweets - those get even worse.

Wow. Finding the racist comments about Asian eyes funny is pretty damn offensive. By the way, I'm half Korean, and I read this with my Asian eyes.

@gocards Agreed. And on behalf of St. Louis, apologies to the world.
