CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs have terminated a DJ at Wrigley Field after an inappropriate song was played when Aroldis Chapman walked off the mound during Sunday night’s game.

When Chapman left the mound in the top of the ninth inning, the DJ played the 90’s song “Smack My B***h Up” over the stadium’s PA system.

Chapman served a 30-game suspension earlier this year when he was with the New York Yankees for violating Major League Baseball’s domestic abuse policy. According to the Chicago Tribune, he was accused of choking his girlfriend and firing shots in his garage. He was not arrested, and no charges were filed.

Cubs have fired the DJ, but declined to release the person’s name.

Cubs president of baseball operations Crane Kenney apologized today and said, “The selection of this track showed a lack of judgment and sensitivity to an important issue.”

The team says it’ll take tighter control of what music gets played during games.
