Christian Yelich's attorneys looking into 'false and defamatory' video
The video allegedly depicted Yelich engaged in a sex act with a woman
A false and defamatory video was tweeted about me the past 24hrs. It is 100% not me in the video. My attorneys are looking into it— Christian Yelich (@ChristianYelich) July 18, 2016
Yelich's tweet was deleted shortly after being posted. The video in question was posted on Twitter by user @RealMarlinsFan. Both the video and that Twitter account have since been deleted as well.
Yelich, 24, is enjoying a breakout season in 2016. He's hitting .318/.399/.475 (138 OPS+) with 24 doubles and seven home runs in 86 games.
