Although Brandon Phillips and beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans have apparently made amends, one civil rights organization is still upset with Phillips, manager Dusty Baker, and the team over the incident, which involved Phillips unleashing a profanity-laced and personal verbal attack on Rosecrans before Wednesday's game.
The National Association for the Advancement of Fat Acceptance (NAAFA) is seeking a public apology from Phillips telling gossip media site TMZ, "[Brandon's] poor choice of words indicates that he may have missed the fact that verbal aggression and threats are bullying."
Aside from Phillips, the organization is also extremely steamed at Baker for "allowing his player to bully a reporter during this press conference. There are no innocent bystanders."
Additionally, NAAFA is especially angry at the Reds as a whole for failing to come forward and condemn the action by one of their players. "Putting on an anti-bullying face then allowing the blasting of a reporter's body-size is not acceptable," says NAAFA.
