It wasn’t long after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself, that former NFL player Roy Williams sent out a Tweet which contained little bang-bang gun graphics.
And today, after another horrific shooting-not to mention the tragedy at Newtown-someone else opened fire in Phoenix.
So why, why, why is the usually ‘good’ Shaun Phillips tweeting THIS?
People take things way to serious I’m joking people. I hate losers you should all 👫🔫

Is it not irresponsible of professional athletes to joke about shooting people? Why isn’t anyone addressing this issue? What is wrong with these guys? Are they so completely out of touch with current news? Does it not occur to them that Tweets like this glorify guns and shooting?
Sorry Shaun, you’ve lost my respect…guess I’m a loser that needs to be shot?
