Kansas City running back Larry Johnson was released today. His behaviour on Twitter may have contributed to the Kansas City Chiefs’ decision:
“… According to the Kansas City Star, Johnson posted demeaning comments, directed at Chiefs coach Haley, on his Twitter feed hours after the 37-7 loss to the San Diego Chargers on October 25.
The newspaper reported Johnson also used derogatory language in a reply to a follower on Twitter and to a reporter.”
Larry Johnson now knows that it is very difficult to retract what goes on the internet, even in 140 character statements on Twitter.
