CLEVELAND — Tensions are high following the Cleveland Browns loss against the Denver Broncos.
Many frustrated fans took to Twitter to vent, which caught the eye of safety Jermaine Whitehead.
After the game, he reportedly went on a rampage from what’s believed to be his Twitter account, allegedly threatening different users like radio host Dustin Fox from 92.3 The Fan.
Fox had called him out posting, “Whiteheads efforts tackling today is a joke.”
Whitehead appeared to reply from the Twitter account, saying: “Come get it in blood b**** made a** lil boy. I’m out there with a broke hand.. don’t get smoked f*** a*** c******.””
On another post, he reportedly wrote, “Don’t get shot at lil b****… can you whoop my a**… f*** football… let me know when you need the address.”
His Twitter account has since been suspended.
Whitehead also posted on his verified Instagram account Sunday night.
He shared a photo of himself with a caption defending his actions.
“Crazy world. They line it up and say anything in the book too you. They tell you take the high road, when yo whole life you was taught to meet fire with fire. I do apologize for my performance, but having a broke hand and a strong fear of letting my team down is my downfall. Whatever happens happens. Ain trippin. They probably gone still talk crazy but this me getting smoke off my chest. I don’t need one like.. this from me to me! Keep ya head up homie, can’t nobody f*** with you. I dare em to try,” he wrote.
