Wiz Khalifa threw out the first pitch at a recent Pittsburgh Pirates game, when they faced the Baltimore Orioles at PNC Park in his hometown. But… his appearance was a bit controversial, due to his choice of clothing and the gesture he made before throwing out the pitch.
Sporting a “Legalize It” T-shirt, Wiz took the mound and greeted the crowd, before placing his hand at his mouth and making a smoking gesture. He then threw a pitch very wide and outside.
Later, the rapper appeared to smoke some weed while watching the game.
The MLB wasn’t supportive of Wiz’s marijuana celebration and issued issued a statement denouncing his actions. “Marijuana is probated substance in all of our drug programs. It’s unfortunate this situation occurred,” said a spokesperson for the league. “The Pirates have informed us that this should not have happened.”
