Football Player Tackles Newspaper with Profane Tweets

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White took to Twitter to voice his frustrations with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution over a story about his cousin, Ali White.

ProFootballTalk reported that Roddy White was angered by the newspaper’s story about his cousin’s arrest on charges of assault and robbery, adding that Ali White had moved in with the football player four years ago in an attempt to turn his life around.

Roddy White sent two separate, profane Tweets, since edited, lashing out at the Journal-Constitution, with the first one reading, “Can the atlanta journal constitution not call my phone anymore about stuff tht has nothing to do with me if its not football related don’t call my f___ing phone,” and the second saying, “Better yet don’t even associate me with criminal activities I aint done nothing u f___ing a__holes.”
