Jose Canseco tweets alleged rape accuser's name, address
Jose Canseco went to a whole new level of vile on Wednesday: He tweeted the name and contact information of a woman who reportedly accused him of sexual assault.
Former pro baseball player Jose Canseco is now mostly known for his clueless (and sometimes misogynistic) rants on Twitter, but his Wednesday tweets are no laughing matter.
The whole thing started on Tuesday when the slugger tweeted that the Las Vegas police were questioning him about an alleged sexual assault.
All misspellings and grammatical errors are Canseco's:
Breaking news this is a first folks las vegas police was just at my house I have been charged with rape by a [redacted] from las vegas."
All media welcome to this drama filled event. Did I rape [redacted] or is she lieing. Stay tuned to another day in the life of jose Canseco.
[Redacted] told police that I druged her and then raped her.hmmmmm.lets find out what really happened.
He's since deleted the tweets, but not before he published the accuser's full name, phone number, and work address under the guise of getting a polygraph test.
Canseco wasn't done there. He started the tweets again Wednesday afternoon — and they are still up as of early Thursday morning.
"Lets play truth or dare. I dare [redacted] to tell the truth," he wrote.
"Wow now people r threatening me not to tell the truth.whats the matter u cant handle the truth," he continued.
"Truth or dare. I dare u to take a polygragh (sic) on national tv.i will take one."
Las Vegas police won't comment on the details of the case.
"He's being investigated for an alleged sexual assault, and that's it," a LVPD spokesman to The Atlantic Wire.
Our question: Why is Twitter allowing him to keep tweeting about an active case? Definitely not cool, Twitter... not cool at all.
