Yesterday Pittsburgh Steeler running back, Rashard Medenhall tweeted:

“What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side…”

Why did he do that? (SMH) But wait, it gets worse…

I’m not sure what set him off but he went on a “twitter rampage” when he a referenced the Sept. 11 attacks and said:

“We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style.”

Needless to say the Steeler organization immediately went in to “level 5-PR” mode. Here’s what team president Art Rooney II said:

“I have not spoken with Rashard, so it is hard to explain or even comprehend what he meant with his recent Twitter comments. The entire Steelers organization is very proud of the job our military personnel have done and we can only hope this leads to our troops coming home soon.”

Mendenhall’s string of tweets ended around 6 p.m. Monday. He has not tweeted since.

Do you think he was out of line with his comments? Let us know on Twitter and Facebook…
