If you're just waking up this morning, chances are you didn't have nearly as bad of a night as Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Josh Hader. Hader's first All-Star game appearance will be one he remembers for all the wrong reasons.

Haden, a 24-year-old lefty, surrendered a three-run home run to Jean Segura in the eighth inning of last night's All-Star Game in D.C. His faulty pitching was far and away the second-worst part of his evening, however.

As the game was being played, a wealth of racist, sexist and homophobic tweets from Hader's personal account dating back to 2011 and 2012 were unearthed. The reaction to them on social media was swift, and Hader actually deleted some of the tweets and locked his account in the middle of the game.

However, the tweets were screencapped before he could do any of that. Deadspin has all of them cataloged if you want to check them out and there are some included in the tweet below.

As far as old tweets go, well, these are pretty damn bad. They don't come off as just being an immature teenager either. Hader was asked about his tweets following the game.

Hader will continue to take heat for this, though it likely won't jeopardize his season or career.

Hopefully he has learned and changed his views, but those tweets are an awful look.
