Matt Leinart really wishes he didn’t send out a tweet this weekend.

On Saturday, the former NFL quarterback took to Twitter and stated how people were just out and about at a beach and how okay with it he was.

He quickly deleted it.

He then tried ot explain his reasoning for the tweet.

Social media still had a field day with the former USC QB:
