John Rocker Adds Jews to Hate List

1/24/2009 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John RockerSay what you will about former Atlanta Braves alum John Rocker, but the guy seems to hate every minority equally.

John Rocker was reportedly booted from an Atlanta nightclub Thursday night after slur-slapping sports commentator Steak Shapiro. Shapiro claims he pulled the "Jew card," according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Remember back in December 1999, when he told Sports Illustrated how he hated mingling in NYC with "some queer with AIDS." And he had choice words for women, Asians, Koreans, Vietnamese, Russians and Indians. He also called a Black teammate a "fat monkey."

Shapiro, a radio commentator on 790 the Zone, was critical of Rocker when the S.I. article came out. He says at Atlanta's Whisky Blue Nightclub Thursday night he asked Rocker to "be civil" after Rocker gave him the death stare.

Rocker then demonstrated just how civil he'd become a decade later by fast balling a string of expletives and pulling the "jew" card.

Some times two strikes is enough to be out.

I am all of 6 ft tall I weigh 165 pounds, And I would love to bump into Rocker in a street alley, Even in his home town, This guy really needs to be put in his place! He only has bad things to say about everyone, Blacks, Jews, Gays, He is a public figure why can't he just keep his trap shut? I would challenge him to a bare fist match and we will all see the type of person he is. I have a black wife, A jewish son in law, My younger brother is gay, I would clean his clock in a matter of seconds.....Like his career. Bring it!

If TMZ had the whole story....you would understand    

I have no problem with a baseball player being a racist, I have a problem with anyone that has power over anyone else being a racist. As, the once great Charles Barkley said, we need to be our children's heros, not sport figures, so why do I care if he is a racist?

Not sure how calling a black person a "fat monkey" is a racist comment. If i call a white person "fat pig" is that a racist comment? It is what it is.
