Arizona Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett doesn’t really have much of a filter – though it’s likely going to cost him his social media privileges in the near future.

Known for posting some outlandish things, Dockett has become one of the more popular athletes using social media sites like Twitter and Instagram. That said, he seemingly continues to find himself in the middle of controversy with some of his tweets – today being no different.

Dockett decided to make an inappropriate and racist comment on Friday night – a comment that has yet to be removed which I doubt is sitting well with the Arizona Cardinals organization:

Apple has a new device out for Chinese people. The iOpener.

The defensive end was called out by many Twitter users but continued to take pride in his comment, suggesting you can’t please everybody.

Given the tweet took place late on Friday evening, it’s possible the team hasn’t been able to get Dockett to remove it yet but I have a feeling the Cardinals’ public relations department is going to have a rough few days on their hands.
