There are always boundaries when it comes to comments on certain situations. I know most people find them humorous, but a good chunk will find them tasteless/dark/uncalled for.

There’s a complete difference between a player getting arrested for drug possession, a D.U.I., speeding ticket or even making a bone head play. But when it comes to something as serious as ‘rape’, then you have to tread lightly.

This is a very touchy subject, especially with athletes.

NBC Sports Radio on Twitter issued out a tweet reading; ‘CONFIRMED: Jameis Winston gives the Heisman stiff arm to the allegations against him of sexual assault. He will not be charged.’

This Tweet picked up negative attention almost immediately as people, including myself, let them know how disturbing the Tweet was.

Whoever issued out that Tweet is more than likely getting ripped into right now. Maybe even having to update their resume, but sending out something like this won’t look good.

Someone’s in some trouble. Anyways, here’s a picture of the Tweet since they deleted the actual one itself.
