Earlier today, we pointed out that Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes has been trading jabs with fans via Twitter, in the wake of Monday’s news that he has been sued for assault and battery.
We noticed, for example, that Holmes reminded one fan that the fans don’t cut Holmes’ checks.
We hadn’t noticed a far less charitable exchange with another fan. Holmes accuses the fan of trying to make Holmes look like the bad guy, and then says that the fan “shud try finding the worst thing that you could drink n kill urself.”
So while Holmes looks to be in the clear from the perspective of the Orlando Police Department, he’s still going to have some explaining to do to the folks who actually cut his checks.
