— Oakland A’s (@Athletics) August 7, 2020
“I had a mistake and I will not deny it. Today in the dugout I congratulated the players with a gesture that was offensive. In today’s world, with COVID, I adapted our elbow clash that we do as a celebration, to create distance with the players. My gesture, unintentionally, was a horrible and racist greeting. What I did is unacceptable and I deeply regret it, ”said Christenson.
