Social media can be a great outlet for some. For others who can’t control their emotions, it can be a distraction that eventually leads bad publicity.
Former LSU Tigers Rashard Robinson was arrested on June 12 for reportedly breaking into current LSU quarterback Anthony Jennings apartment and stealing items from his home. It was never proven that Robinson stole anything, but he was still dismissed from the team.
The story should have ended there, but in the world of Twitter, emotions can be set off at any minute.
Upon the news that Jennings, along with defensive lineman Maquedius Bain and defensive back Dwayne Thomas were re-instated following their recent off the field incident, the former Tiger Robinson took to Twitter to vent on how he felt about his former teammates situation.
Cory Worsham of Tigerrag.com was unable to catch the tweets before being deleted, but did get the text of what Robinson said.
Enter Robinson’s reasoning for the Twitter rant.
It shouldn’t come as a shock to hear the “my account was hacked” excuse. It’s an easy cop out that can never be proven.
