Roddy White’s cousin Ali White, 21, was arrested recently on charges of assault and robbery.
The story has questionable news value, but the Atlanta Journal-Constitution likely ran with it in part because Roddy White’s close relationship with Ali. Roddy took Ali in to his home in 2008 in an effort to set Ali on the right path and help turn his life around.
White is furious with the paper for their coverage and for calling him.
“Can the atlanta journal constitution not call my phone anymore about stuff tht has nothing to do with me if its not football related don’t call my #!@%*# phone” White wrote on Twitter Monday. “Better yet don’t even associate me with criminal activities I aint done nothing u f***ing a**holes.” (Note: We added the stars there.)
I don’t have a strong feeling about who is in the right here, but I understand Roddy’s anger.
Florio agrees with Roddy’s take; that it ultimately has nothing to do with White if he wasn’t involved (he wasn’t) and it’s not football related.
