Oh boy, this guy is a talented back, but not too bright it would seem
- Rashard Mendenhallhas created a stir with comments made on his official Twitter page regarding Osama bin Laden’s death.
The Pittsburgh Steelers running back on Monday tweeted: “What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side…”
Wow! Is Mendenhall, actually saying we should not be celebrating the death of a vile, murderous terrorist? And Rashard we HAVE heard bib Laden speak, and seen his actions too. He was an evil monster and mass murderer!
Mendenhall didn’t hold back, even making a reference to the Sept. 11 attacks.
“We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style.”
Oh, and he is a TRUTHER too! Somehow this does not shock me at all
The Steelers felt compelled to act. On Tuesday, team president Art Rooney II released a statement.
“I have not spoken with Rashard, so it is hard to explain or even comprehend what he meant with his recent Twitter comments. The entire Steelers organization is very proud of the job our military personnel have done and we can only hope this leads to our troops coming home soon.”
It would appear that Medenhall has some equally wacky views on what slavery was like
Mendenhall, who profiles himself as a “conversationalist and professional athlete” on his Twitter page, turned some heads in March, as well, when he supported a comment by Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson comparing the NFL to “modern-day slavery.”
“Anyone with knowledge of the slave trade and the NFL could say that these two parallel eachother,” Mendenhall posted at the time.
WTF? slavery was like being an NFL player? Good Freaking Grief! I wonder if he is related to this asshat?
