NBC Philadelphia reports that a Bloomsburg University (PA) player was cut after making an offensive and vulgar tweet about Little League superstar pitcher Mo’ne Davis. The Bloomsburg player, Joey Casselberry, has since deactivated his account. His tweet was made in response to news that Davis was having a Disney movie made about her.

Bloomsburg University tweeted about the issue, distancing themselves from the player’s comments while noting that they discussed the issue with the coach and the team.

Davis has earned a lot of notoriety in helping the Taney Dragons advance in the Little League World Series, becoming the first girl to earn a win and toss a shutout in the contest. She threw out the first pitch before Game 4 of the World Series, appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated, and has her own book, titled Remember My Name.

ESPN’s Keith Law pointed out to me on Twitter that Casselberry apologized on Twitter before deactivating.
