Once again Twitter has helped an athlete get himself in trouble. This time it's Cleveland Browns return man Josh Cribbs.
Cribbs fumbled a punt during Sunday's 34-12 loss to Denver, and when he checked his Twitter account later he found he was the recipient of several tweets from fans criticizing his lackluster play in the game.
He responded: “See all the negativity on twitter after I gave my life to this,” then offered a profane suggestion to “all u who are against me.”
Cribbs apologized Wednesday, saying he was more mad at himself than anyone else, and that he realizes true Browns fans would not try to criticize him like that.
