The best approach after floating a dog-ate-my-homework-style excuse is to keep one’s head low, and one’s mouth shut.
Titans receiver Kenny Britt has opted not to follow that approach.
According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Britt has issued another statement reiterating that Monday’s misadventures with his Facebook page resulted from the hacking of his account.
“I have the utmost respect for Commissioner Goodell, the NFL and the TN Titans,’’ Britt said. “The Facebook posting as reported was not made by myself nor have I given any statements to anyone regarding this matter. It is not a defense but a fact that this Facebook page and associated email account were hacked and reported more than 120 days ago.”
OK, so the hacking didn’t happen Monday. It happened more than 120 days ago. And in the 120 days since the hacking was reported, Britt continued to use the account, cognizant of the hacking and taking no steps to ensure that it wouldn’t continue, such as changing his password to something other than “password.”
Next time, Kenny, just float your ridiculous excuse one time, and then simply pretend it never happened.
