Friday night, after D-Jac's comments were posted around the interwebtuals, Ya Boi took to Twitter to defend his comments (Tweets which were later deleted):
WANNA BRING ME DOWN BUT IM OK!! THEY TRYIN KNOCC ME OFF BUT IM STILL ON!! THEY LOOKN 2 TAKE YA DOWN AT ALL TIMES NO MATTER HOW POSITIVE AND WHAT U DO!! ITS ALWAYS AWAY THEY TRY TO GET YA … IM STANDIN TALL.
First of all, umm caps lock?? Second, try a "G" on those verbs. Works wonders.
Last night, DeSean released a statment and updated those comments to be a little more grammatically and politically correct:
I am sorry for using words that I know to be hurtful and unacceptable in a recent radio interview. I have made a mistake and would like to make it clear that words I used meant no disrespect to the Gay and Lesbian community. Intolerance is unacceptable and I apologize to anyone I have offended.
Yeah, he didn't write that.
Let's hypothesize – and this is a hypothetical! – about how D-Jac may have expressed that sentiment:
YO ITS YA BOY DJACC HERR AND I JUST WANT 2 TAKE A 2ND TO SAY MY BAD 4 SAYIN WORDS I NO 2 TO B HURT YA WHEN YA BOI WAS HOLDN IT DOWN ON SIRIUS SAT COM YA DIGG??? MY BAD AND WASNT TRY'N MAKE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR LKE YA BOY DJACC RUNNIN N OPEN FIELD THAT I WASNT TRY'N SLAM U GAYS AND LES. THAT WASN COOL N I SAY MY BAD TO ALL MY LIGHTFOOT PEEPS.
That should be followed by some fun emails…
Anyway, D-Jac apologized… and I will too. I've been told that D-Jac did not spend $25,000 at da club two weeks ago. Rather, it was allegedly a promotional party for his upcoming JACCPOT Records, which apparently has some funding other than from D-Jac's pocket. I do, however, have trouble believing that someone funding a record label would allow a bunch of kids to drop $25,000 on drinks. Finance guys usually have a lot of money exactly because they don't do things like that. Secondly, D-Jac removed the Tweet pretty quickly. His buddy also said this the morning after:
My boy @DeseanJackson10 went in last night i thought it was New Years Eve!!!!
So, officially, D-Jac didn't foot the $25,000 bill. But my eyebrow is still raised.
He’s so immature he makes Terrell Owens look like the Dos Equis guy. This guy’s future seriously terrifies me. We’re going to throw so much coin at this child or else he’s outta here. All the while he might end up getting arrested or not ever even get any better…
It’s sad but unsurprising that the only repercussions you can imagine for the bare, bleeding racism in this post is a few annoying emails.
Mike, where’s the racism? Have you not seen one of D-Jac’s tweets? They look exactly like the hypothetical one here.
Mike- has nothing to do with race. That’s how he Tweets. I was actually referring to getting emails for the term “lightfoot”
“That should be followed by some fun emails…”
LOL, This, FTW!!!!
Get the fuck over it Mike… it’s people like you that keep racism alive. There’s nothing racist about it. It’s an imitation of exactly how he is. It has nothing to do with the color of his skin. You need the stupidity slapped out of yourself.
Theres a sense of disappointment and fear of the future.
Well in all honesty Certain people keep racism alive. If people (doesn’t matter what race imo) just learned proper grammar, and spoke like a normal human being instead of having all these weird ass slangs and whatever. Racism wouldn’t have to be brought up with something like this.
Does he still make plays? Yup.
All that matters to me.
I agree with Rob. He may be a little asshole but as long as he’s our little asshole, I’ll root for the player on the field and not the thug off it.
