Ravens linebacker Brendan Ayanbadejo hasn’t backed down from controversial stances, but apparently deleted a Twitter message that called Baltimore a “violent city” and referred to a shooting “at a club last weekend with 10 Ravens in the building. Scary.”
According to the Baltimore Sun’s Justin Fenton, the message referred to a shooting outside Club Mirage, where two people were shot around 1 a.m. Monday, one of whom was critically injured.
Ayanbadejo’s timeline is still full of references to the need for stricter gun laws, but the tweet in question was deleted after about 16 hours.
He made news recently with his outspoken support of gay marriage, when a Maryland politician tried to silence him.
