First, newly elected Hall of Fame wide receiver Marvin Harrison had some sharp words for Terrell Owens. Then, Owens took to Twitter with a pretty sharp comeback.
“Shots fired,” Owens wrote atop a tweet that quoted Harrison Thursday afternoon, adding some fancy laughter emojis for effect.
Kids these days.
It’s pretty clear that Owens was making an oblique reference to Harrison’s alleged involvement in two Philadelphia shootings, and possibly the incident during which someone shot at Harrison last year. Owens has almost 1.5 million Twitter followers.
In a recent and rare interview, Harrison said he wasn’t at all concerned about Owens’ gripes regarding last month’s Hall of Fame vote — or anything else — and said Owens “can talk all that other bulls— like he’s been doing. That’s on him. But I’m in. My jacket is gold. I will look in the rear view for nobody.
“So he can get his ass in whenever he gets in…if he gets in. If he doesn’t get in, too bad. The hell with him.”
Amazing that people regard wide receivers as divas, isn’t it?
