@WillBrinson he is being sarcastic

@jonahkeri @WillBrinson When I first read it, I thought for sure he was being sarcastic. No one could REALLY say that… right?

@WillBrinson @sportsrage is this shit real?

— Tyler Wilson (@TylerCRWilson) September 13, 2014

@WillBrinson I thought it was hilarious. Wait, he was joking, right?

— Daniel Hartis (@DanielHartis) September 13, 2014

@roddywhiteTV I'm confused. Was it a joke? Because it didn't sound like a joke. If that's how u feel then you're entitled to ur jackassery

Well, he did end up deleting it.

@WillBrinson Its pretty clear that there is a pretty vast divide in how people respond to this issue. More so than the Rice issue.

@WillBrinson he deleted it

— Jonah Keri (@jonahkeri) September 13, 2014

Wow, @roddywhiteTV must have a PR person and/or a lawyer on call 24/7 https://t.co/mp5kGuavas

@WillBrinson but less than three minutes between boneheaded tweet and apology. Impressive turnaround. @BobLeyESPN

— Jason Kint (@jason_kint) September 13, 2014

@WillBrinson @dan_bernstein proving once again that there should be a ten second delay before you post anything on social media.

— nicholas andrea (@deacon6375) September 13, 2014

@WillBrinson @BobLeyESPN get it down to seven seconds and we can use a magic button to pull it back in like television.

— Jason Kint (@jason_kint) September 13, 2014

@jonahkeri @WillBrinson deleted after like 800 retweets. Oy.

@WillBrinson @brettslama nothing surprises anymore

— John O'Brien (@John_O_B) September 13, 2014

@WillBrinson @FakeChrisFedor Winner of the most disgusting and insensitive tweet of the year goes to #RoddyWhite

— Mike De Girolamo (@kworld299) September 13, 2014

@bigjerm412: “@WillBrinson: Roddy White why? pic.twitter.com/6TVRFDZ5uG” can't make this shit up” Every athlete should just delete twitter.

— Taylor Wilson (@YoungTomServo) September 13, 2014

@YoungTomServo that's what I was thinking

— Big Jerm (@bigjerm412) September 13, 2014

.@roddywhiteTV – uhhh, you say a lot of things on Twitter you shouldn't have. Maybe you should reconsider social media as a whole.

— Christopher Gachko (@C_Gach) September 13, 2014

Roddy White has also defended Penn State, Joe Paterno http://t.co/T3INlPBlHi and sent anti-gay tweets in past http://t.co/AZe4R9iq81
