Kate Upton decries the ‘dumb misogynist comments’ she received after tweeting about controversial World Series call

She’s married to Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander.

So naturally Kate Upton had things to say on Twitter following a controversial call during game 6 of the World Series on Tuesday night between the Astros and the Washington Nationals.

However, she wasn’t prepared for the blowback she received on the social media platform, tweeting: ‘I LOVE talking about sports and reading all of the dumb misogynist comments. It reminds me that women need to keep fighting for equality. It’s 2019 but feels like the 1950s.’

The baseball game was delayed amid a disputed interference call in the seventh inning involving the Nats’ Trea Turner and his path to first base.

‘He wasn’t within the base path,’ Upton tweeted, along with an image of the relevant portion of the field snapped at Houston’s Minute Maid Park.

The blonde model, 27, continued: ‘Those who don’t know the rule you HAVE to run inside the 2 lines. Not sure why the review is taking so long…’

Turner was ruled out at first and Washington manager Dave Martinez was tossed out of the game after an apoplectic rant against the officials.

Some of the responses Upton got suggested she should 'stick to modeling' and that her love for Verlander blinded her to 'reason.' Others referenced the Astros hiring of pitcher Roberto Osuna who had been suspended for domestic violence in May 2018 and the firing last week of Astros Assistant GM Brandon Taubman for attacking a group of women reporters

Some of the responses Upton got suggested she should ‘stick to modeling’ and that her love for Verlander blinded her to ‘reason.’

One Twitter user called her out for having a husband who ‘works for this decades most sexist team,’ a reference to the hiring of pitcher Roberto Osuna who had been suspended for domestic violence in May 2018 and the firing last week of Astros Assistant GM Brandon Taubman for attacking a group of women reporters. 

Upton and Verlander, 36, tied the knot in Italy on November 4, 2017, less than a week after the Astros won the World Series for the first time in a seven-game showdown with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

A year later, they welcomed their daughter Genevieve.
