Roddy White apologizes for his fantasy football Tweet about Adrian Peterson
Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver Roddy White made a dumb comment on Twitter, reacting to the news of Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson being indicted for hurting his four-year-old son.
White focused on the impact Peterson being deactivated will have on his fantasy football team.
“I’m probably going to lose my fantasy football matchup this week cause all day can’t play Sunday for disciplining his child Jesus help us,” White wrote.
White deleted the ill-advised comment and later apologized.
"I should not have made light of a very serious situation," White wrote. "I understand the strong feelings about this issue and i shouldn’t have said that.”
