Sammy Sosa‘s newest look has raised a few eyebrows online.
The famed retired baseball pro has been living a relatively quiet life in recent years. However, Sosa mad headlines on the internet over the weekend when a photo of him and his wife Sonia Rodriguez celebrating at her themed birthday party popped up on social media. The photo took fans by surprise as Sosa and his spouse are sporting cowboy getups, immediately fueling jokes about the pair’s outfits and pose
“Ok I need to know which JC Penney allowed this,” one person quipped on Twitter of the photo. “This is everything I love about everything,” someone else said of the shot. “[This] needs to be the stock photo in all picture frames that are sold.”
“#SammySosa out here lookin like Woody from Toy Story,” another person joked.
While the athlete has not addressed the recent comments about his appearance, he has previously attributed his changing look to a cream he was using.
“It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some,” the former baseball star said in 2009 on the “Primer Impacto” program at the Univision Spanish network, according to ESPN. “It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist. I live my life happily.”
Judging by the videos of Sosa and his wife on the dance floor, his life looks happy indeed.
