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.
