Today, in sporting fashion critiques, former Major League Baseball player Aubrey Huff has blasted LeBron James on Twitter for his off-court personal style – specifically for a Thom Browne suit and leather purse. Hashtag emasculation!

The inexplicably low-res pics of James were captioned with: "Young men this is not how a man is supposed to dress. Carrying a purse is not cool. I suppose dressing like this makes it easier to kneel. #emasculated." Before we can unpack let's remember that Huff is addressing the "young men" of Twitter with a bio that reads "Protector of Toxic Masculinity" unironically.

The replies come for Aubrey is various ways, notably pointing out some of Huff's own awkward style choices including a red thong (a baffling choice considering his views), his reluctance to wear a mask, and general lack of accolades. Someone even went as far as to add the roasting to his Wikipedia page.

Obviously wearing a purse is cool, and a perfect accessory for the post-totebag, post-sidebag world, as evidenced by a cow print option from NLSWOLF below.
