Hyper-Masculinity: Shifting The Narrative

After the viral video that showed Ozzie Albies and Ronald Acuna Jr. of the Atlanta Braves, sharing an intimate moment of affection, social media flipped with wavering opinions. While some people appreciated the display of tenderness from the two major league baseball players, others weren’t as open to the idea of two men, especially in sports, displaying this type of affection. According to reports, Albies comforted Acuna, whose mother passed away during the Game. Still, that wasn’t enough to get naysayers from poking “fun” at the two best friends’ consoling moment.
