Retired Atlanta Braves star Chipper Jones found himself in hot water over the weekend after making a Twitter joke about using alligators to chase illegal immigrants away from the border.


Offended Twitter users immediately launched a counterattack on Jones.






Jones apologized for his "attempt at humor" a day later.


But even that drew criticism.



Jones, who played his entire 19 seasons with the Braves, retired last year.
