David Wells, a former New York Yankees pitcher and former Major League Baseball pitcher, has made it clear that he's not afraid of canceling culture.
Wells was part of the baseball team in 1998, where he pitched the second perfect game in franchise history.
He said there's no question about how things have changed in sports marketing. The former MLB pitcher has been accused of covering up the Nike logo on his Yankees jersey during the team's Old Timers' Day game.
The Yankees' greatest match was parallels with Nike's support of Colin Kaepernick's anti-anthem stance, while Bud Light's partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney.
He also voiced support for outspoken activists in sports like former University of Kentucky swimmer Riley Gaines, who has joined a media and policy effort to safeguard the integrity of women-only competitions.
Wells, who is a former soldier, is also the founder of the Fantastic 33 Foundation, a veterans-based organization. On Sept. 9, he said his appreciation for U.S. military men and women is what inspired him to tape up the Nike logo on his jersey.
Nike and Bud Light parent company Anheuser-Busch did not respond to FNC Digital's request for comment.
