The New York Jets faced some trash talk on Twitter after their 24-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night and, amazingly, the nasty tweets didn't come from Philly fans.
The tweets appeared to have come from Jets tight ends coach Jimmie Johnson’s 24-year-old son also named Jimmie. But before Junior's offending tweets were deleted, they were captured by Yahoo! Sports for the world to see.
In one tweet @JimmieJ82 posted a picture of Geno Smith posing with a young fan and wrote, “Bum ass Geno Smith.”
He followed it up with a picture of Antonio Cromartie, with the caption: “Antonio Cromartie with 2 of his 15 kids.”
That all might have been awkward enough, considering his father is a first year coach for the team, but the situation got worse when Cromartie took notice of the tweets. And the fuming cornerback didn't hold back.
After Cromartie responded: "Y the f you worried about my family. If it wasn’t for your dad you (wouldn’t) be nothing in life @JimmieJ82. You better watch yourself son," Johnson's son continued his Twitter assault: "yo f--- you Cro you weak ass bi----. You gonna be playing til you 60 to pay all that child support."
Eventually, the account’s handle was changed to @JTre88, and he apologized to Cromartie.
“@CRO31 apologize for the tweet man, I really didn’t mean anything by it. Stupid tweet. I hope I get to apologize to you in person,” he tweeted.
“Those tweets were really stupid on my part. Will apologize to both of them if I get the chance,” he added in another tweet.
