Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez has a unique way of dealing with haters

In September 2020, the popular podcast channel, The Corp With A-Rod and Big Cat, which is hosted by Alex ‘A-Rod’ Rodriguez and Dan ‘Big Cat’ Katz, hosted an interview with popular sports commentator Joe Buck. The trio talked for almost an hour, where they discussed sports, broadcasting, life after sports, fame, and much more. While talking, Big Cat asked A-Rod how he deals with criticism and hatred of people during and after baseball.

A-Rod replied, “I’ve known that for now. About two and a half decades. The greatest thing about me and Twitter is people are gonna say all the nasty things and I don’t know how to get into Twitter. I just tweet a little bit and I don’t know how to respond.”
