Social media etiquette 101 says, if you’re going to talk trash about someone you know in real life but would never say those things face to face, it’s probably a good idea to make sure they don’t know your Twitter handle.
Sunday evening a few tweets taking shots at New York Jets players popped up, after the team’s 24-17 loss to the Eagles. The tweets were sent from new tight ends’ coach Jimmie Johnson’s son’s account. Of course they were later deleted but not before Yahoo! Sports grabbed a few screenshots and Jets CB Antonio Cromartie clapped back.
He followed this up with a photo of Antonio Cromartie, with the caption, “Antonio Cromartie with 2 of his 15 kids.”
“Y the f you worried about my family. If it wasn’t for your dad you (wouldn’t) be nothing in life @JimmieJ82. You better watch yourself son,” Cromartie
Eventually he changed his Twitter handle to @JTre88, and apologized.
“@CRO31 apologize for the tweet man, I really didn’t mean anything by it. Stupid tweet. I hope I get to apologize to you in person,” he tweeted.
“Those tweets were really stupid on my part. Will apologize to both of them if I get the chance,” he added in another tweet.
I’m sure the conversation with his dad was interesting.
