Former Nittany Lions star running back and current NFL perennial screw-up Larry Johnson is in deep shit yet again. I have spared you some of the stories about his recent arrests, but I couldn’t hold it back any longer.
This time, the chronic malcontent of the Kansas City Chiefs has been slandering people via Twitter from his cell phone.
He issued one of his typically unconvincing apologies today, but the team has told him to stay away from team activities, including practice, while the Chiefs are investigating the “alleged” comments.
The comments, posted on Sunday by Johnson after the Chiefs’ 37-7 loss to the Chargers, were directed toward Chiefs coach Todd Haley. According to Kent Babb of The Kansas City Star, Johnson used “a gay slur” in one of his tweets while responding to a follower, and another “gay slur” Monday after telling reporters he wasn’t speaking publicly until Thursday.
So, I guess the translation is that he called his coach, his Twitter followers, and reporters all fags.
