Umpire Joe West has once again drawn the ire of fans on Sunday afternoon.

During the Braves-Nationals game, West stopped the game to eject Nationals GM Mike Rizzo, who was sitting by himself in his suite in the upper deck, for not wearing a mask.

Fans thought it was relatively absurd for West to eject Rizzo for not wearing a mask considering he was sitting by himself.

Do something about this asshole Joe West @MLB.

Dude ejecting Nats GM Mike Rizzo for not wearing a mask while he’s quite literally the ONLY person in his suite while improperly wearing his own mask is so on brand. pic.twitter.com/l93GlgT9yN

Can @MLB spring for a mask that fits Joe West’s face? He looks like he got clotheslined by an Ace bandage. @Braves @Nationals pic.twitter.com/SZN8QJIaiP

There are some people who never trend for a good reason. Joe West is one of them.

Joe West can’t see the strike zone a foot in front of him but he was able to see the Nats GM sitting alone in a suite in the upper deck?

Proof that Joe West spends a good deal of his time on the field not actually paying attention to what is happening on the field. https://t.co/CwSZ8M7QJI

Is anyone surprised that a Joe West led umpiring crew ejected a GM from a suite OUTSIDE and by himself for not wearing a mask??? IDIOTIC rule to begin with having to wear a mask OUTSIDE in an empty stadium but for umpires to give a flying
?
is ridiculous!! Clean it up MLB https://t.co/PKYWHqHUQz

Joe West is a damn stooge. Starting with him and Angel Hernandez, the current umpire squad needs to be completely replaced. https://t.co/lpQHO5Hgil
