Titans’ Kenny Britt Curses Out NFL Commissioner, “Retires,” Repents, Blames Facebook Hacker
Anthony Weiner and Kenny Britt may run in different circles and be under scrutiny for different forms of misconduct, but if there's one thing they have in common, it's a questionable understanding of social media.
The Tennessee Titans wide receiver claims to be the latest victim of a social media hack after a post appeared on his Facebook page that cursed out NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and announced the 22-year-old's retirement from football.
The status received five "likes," with one commenter kindly offering a corrected spelling of Goodell's name.
Twenty-five minutes later, however, a follow-up post presented this retraction:
"Change of HEart.. My family is always here for me. I made mistakes and i am sorry i am going to change and become a better person and mentor for all my young fans.. I will accept any penalty like a man.. The road beings Sept 11 in Jacksonville.. ill be ready!!!"
Then, in a third update, Britt denied any involvement with the previous two posts:
“my fbook was hacked with those past 2 status’s,” he wrote. “i am not retiring and do not have any hate toward the commissioner.”
Call us jaded, but we're not buying it. After all, Britt's recent string of run-ins with the law hasn't inspired much faith in his decision-making capabilities:
In April, he was arrested for speeding and then leading police on a chase, and the day after appearing in court and having those charges dropped, he was arrested for obstructing the administration of the law, resisting arrest and tampering with or fabricating evidence. Police claimed they smelled marijuana, and Britt, while resisting arrest, crushed up a cigar with his hand.
Additionally, Britt faces two arrest warrants in Tennessee and is "suspected of providing inaccurate information on two separate driver's license applications."
