Jabar Gaffney addresses postgame tweets

You might have heard that Redskins receiver Jabar Gaffney encouraged a gloating Cowboys’ fan to kill himself on Twitter following Sunday’s overtime loss to Dallas, using some profanity in some of his tweets.

Gaffney addressed his postgame tweets in the locker room Monday, downplaying the one in which he told the fan to “get a life or kill urself.”

“I don’t know. Something got took out of [context],” Gaffney said Monday in the Redskins’ locker room. “Cowboys fans, that’s how they are. I was just telling the dude, ‘Y’all won, all right? Leave me alone. Don’t talk to me.’ That’s all it was.”

At the urging of teammates, Gaffney joined Twitter last week. He took to Twitter Monday afternoon to again address the matter.

“They say I can’t tell people to kill themselves,” Gaffney tweeted, “didn’t know freedom of speech had limitations so I’ll just say #uknowwhattodo #HTTR

“better?” he tweeted.
