The “like” button is a tricky thing. While on some sites they have a “like” and “dislike” button, Twitter doesn’t. That can lead to instances of miscommunication, or misinterpreted intentions. According to Tennessee wide receiver Marquez Callaway, that’s what his latest controversy is all about.
Callaway recently “liked” a negative tweet about his coach Butch Jones.
In the tweet, the user asks to name a coach worse than Georgia Southern’s Tyson Summers. Another user responded by saying “Butch Jones,” and Callaway hit the “like” button.

Now he’s saying he doesn’t agree with the sentiment, but wanted to person who posted the tweet to know that he saw it.
He’s removed the “like” from his page, but it appears that’s too little too late.
The tweet Abt CBJ was nothing w/ my opinion,Ik the person who tweeted it and I wanted him to know I seen the tweet,nothing more nothing less

No coach in the country has a hotter seat than Butch Jones does. Tennessee fans have grown tired of losing, and the team looked as listless as ever following a 41-0 loss at the hands of the Georgia Bulldogs last week.
Some feel it’s too late for him to retain his job after the season ends, but if he doesn’t start winning soon, he might be let go mid-season.
