Before this year’s MLB Home Run Derby, Pitbull gave an energetic and charismatic performance, per usual, of course (Dale!). But some fans watching along noticed something about the rapper, who is known for being dressed to the nines at all times. Pitbull was wearing a baseball jersey. No big deal, right? Wrong. Apparently, some clowned him for wearing what appeared to be a children’s sized jersey, which furthermore, was tucked into his white, very fitted, jeans.
This week the MLB All-Star game came to Florida and the King of Miami, Cuban rapper Pitbull, performed at the Home Run Derby.

But that didn’t stop some from clowning his outfit.
Pitbull get his jersey from Baby Gap? That thing is painted on. Absolutely hideous.

And the jokes were glorious.
MLB: "I'm sorry sir, the jersey you ordered for you was delivered in a child's size."

Others were focused on his gloves.
My main question is why is Pitbull wearing batting gloves? https://t.co/ZFONbQf9Du

As funny as the tweets were, some people came to the rapper’s defense.
Tough crowd for pitbull. What the hell is wrong with you Miami, show the man some respect #fireball

And the truth about why the haters were speaking up came to light.
You joke about Pitbull because you are made uncomfortable by his erotic power.

This Twitter user quoted the famous words of rap mogul Birdman.

Quoting the head of Cash Money, rapper and producer Birdman, @KennyDucey wrote “put some respect on Pitbull’s name smh.” I think you mean “respek,” Kenny.
As odd as some thought it was, don’t be surprised if you see people rocking this new look.

Maybe he should’ve just gone the Christina Milian route and tied it in a bow.
