Kate Upton is standing up for herself after “misogynist” baseball fans made fun of her tweets about the World Series.
The model, who is married to Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander, tweeted out about the controversial call during Tuesday night’s game six between the Astros and the Washington Capitals.
Upton, who was watching the drama unfold from the stands at Minute Maid Park, took to Twitter in support of the interference call on the Nationals’ Trea Turner.
“He wasn’t within the base path. Those who don’t know the rule you HAVE to run inside the two lines,” she tweeted. “Not sure why the review is taking so long…”
But when her comment got hit with backlash from Capitals fans, Upton clapped back.
“I LOVE talking about sports and reading all of the dumb misogynist comments. It reminds me that women need to keep fighting for equality,” she hit back. “It’s 2019 but feels like the 1950s. #feminist.”
Because of the call, the Astros and Nationals are forced into a game seven.
