Ghostly Sammy Sosa Dabbed on a London Street and Scared the Hell Out of Everyone
The former MLB star has been bleaching his skin for years.
I️ don’t know Twitter, you tell me what’s happening here… looks like a horror movie where the 2017 Sammy Sosa haunts children by dabbing on them pic.twitter.com/gk1PMxr5T6

The translucent vision above is not some sad and terrifying ghost from the Victorian era captured on film. It’s actually baseball legend Sammy Sosa, captured by a Twitter user while dabbing on a sidewalk somewhere in London.
It’s hard to say whether fans of the ex-slugger should be worried about his state of mind or if it’s no big deal and Sosa is fine. Dabbing, after all, is totally played out and done.

The photos were made Tuesday, and Sosa’s birthday falls on Sunday, when he will turn 49.
He’s a grown-ass man and can bleach his skin—which he’s long insisted he doesn’t do to conceal any kind of skin condition like vitiligo—if he wants to. It’s wrong to make fun of Sosa if he’s doing it due to some kind of mental break, but in TV interviews he seems like the same Sammy who was such an amiable and appealing baseball star in the 90s.
So here’s how social media roasted him after these pics appeared.
Idk what it is, but Sammy Sosa looks like some kind of cartoon villain… who goes around dabbing after taking ladies purses https://t.co/11SkD9yA81

ALSO: the dab is dead. I repeat: THE DAB IS DEAD. The utter uncoolness of it being done by Sammy Sosa in the streets of London while Uncle Fester in a wig has killed it. Tell a friend to tell a friend. pic.twitter.com/ghIn6QQtMi

Sammy Sosa had the audacity to say the reason why he's getting lighter was because he was no longer in the outfield on a daily.
A SU MALDITA EDAD

Just saw this new pic of Sammy Sosa (on the left) and its disheartening to see this. Just pure self hatred at its worst. Sammy Sosa used to be a good looking guy and was a beast in the MLB. pic.twitter.com/qZdn8TdA2a

Really, we just don’t know if the performance-enhancing drugs no one ever was able to totally prove he took got to his brain or if all that bright outfield sunlight just fried a circuit.
It has begun to seem like Sosa needs to come down off some kind of cloud. And stop trying to look like one.
