David Wells interview | via YES Network Chanel

Former New York Yankees star David Wells said he will never drink Bud Light again after the company promoted controversial far-left transgender activism.

Former MSNBC host Keith Olbermann shared a message to his followers on social media about Wells’ comments.

“B——,” Olbermann wrote on X, the company formerly known as Twitter. “(David Wells) would drink wood alcohol. Another f—— fraud.”

Wells fired back, “Keith shut the f— up.”

“Just because you never played the game and all you did was work for ESPN and talk s— on all of us players because you have a degree in journalism makes you an expert on putting Athletes down,” he continued.

“And thats if you even have a degree. Stick to your politics.”

Wells also discussed the current Yankees’ season.

“I don’t care how much money you’re making, send a message to him, and let him go sit down [to Triple-A] and think about it,” he said.

Wells played for 21 seasons with 9 teams. He was known for his colorful personality and his love of the nightlife, but he was also a talented pitcher who was capable of great things on the mound.

He pitched the 15th perfect game in baseball history and won two World Series titles.

Wells was born in Torrance, California, and attended Point Loma High School in San Diego. He was drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the second round of the 1982 MLB draft.

He made his MLB debut in 1987 and quickly established himself as a reliable starter. He helped the Blue Jays win their first World Series championship in 1992.

In 1997, Wells signed as a free agent with the New York Yankees. He had a stellar season, going 18-4 with a 3.49 ERA and leading the American League in wins.

He also pitched the perfect game on May 17, 1998, against the Minnesota Twins.

Wells retired from MLB in 2007. He finished his career with a record of 239-157 and a 4.10 ERA.
