The last thing the Cleveland Browns needed was was unnecessary controversy, but that’s exactly what they got when Jermaine Whitehead took to Twitter after the Browns loss to the Broncos and promptly used racial slurs and threats to any and everybody who opposed him.
The safety allegedly threatened different users like radio host Dustin Fox from 92.3 The Fan.
Fox had called him out posting, “Whiteheads efforts tackling today is a joke.”
Whitehead appeared to reply from the Twitter account, saying: “Come get it in blood b* made a** lil boy. I’m out there with a broke hand.. don’t get smoked f a* c****.””
On another post, he reportedly wrote, “Don’t get shot at lil b… can you whoop my a*… f football… let me know when you need the address.”
Hours later, the Browns would release a statement on the matter.
“Jermaine Whitehead’s social media posts following today’s game were totally unacceptable and highly inappropriate. We immediately spoke with Jermaine upon learning of these comments. The Browns in no way condone that type of language or behavior. This matter will be further addressed internally.”
His Twitter account has since been suspended.
Whitehead also posted on his verified Instagram account Sunday night, which was a photo of himself a long caption:
“Crazy world. They line it up and say anything in the book too you. They tell you take the high road, when yo whole life you was taught to meet fire with fire. I do apologize for my performance, but having a broke hand and a strong fear of letting my team down is my downfall. Whatever happens happens. Ain trippin. They probably gone still talk crazy but this me getting smoke off my chest. I don’t need one like.. this from me to me! Keep ya head up homie, can’t nobody f*** with you. I dare em to try,” he wrote.
