After issuing an apology for his comments on Twitter and in the Chiefs locker room towards the Kansas City media the next day, running back Larry Johnson returned to the social networking site last night.
LJ first responded to a question about why he didn’t get the “white boi treatment” like Bob Griese.
@IDoILo. The way it is my brother
Another person called Johnson a “poser” because he was from State College, PA.
@BrianRowe1 born in Washington DC Nov 19th Raised in Charles County Maryland til age 17. Attended Westlake high school.
And finally he responded to a follower that accepted his apology.
@JeffPars Thanks. Sorry for the embarrassment.
Think about this for a minute. If you were Larry Johnson, would you go anywhere near Twitter after the last couple of days? And yes, his last two tweets were harmless enough. There is, of course, the first exchange about how somehow Bob Griese got off easier for his comments about Juan Pablo Montoya than LJ did simply because the analyst is white.
Trust me, Larry… This has nothing to do with race.
