The Disney Channel announced last week that it would be making a Mo’ne Davis movie called Throw Like Mo, but apparently that made some people jealous. Particularly, a college baseball player at Bloomsburg University in Pennsylvania.

After the announcement, Joey Casselberry took to his (recently deleted) Twitter account to share his thoughts on a movie being made about the Little League World Series star. In the tweet, Casselberry’s response was “What a joke.” However, there was another sentence that followed.

In the very next line, Casselberry called the little girl a “s***.” That’s right. He insulted the sweet little 13-14-year-old girl and called her a s**t.

The reference was to Davis’ loss to Nevada during the LLWS.

As soon as the tweet went viral and Bloomsburg caught whiff of it, they announced the dismissal of the first baseman on their Twitter.

Davis, who appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, was the first girl to earn a win and pitch a shutout in the LLWS.
