One athlete had a WWE stage on which to announce to the crowd that Osama bin Laden had been killed.

All the others had Twitter and one, Milwaukee Bucks forward Chris Douglas-Roberts found himself in 140-character Twitter hell.

“It took 919,967 deaths to kill that one guy. ... It took 10 years & 2 Wars to kill that...guy. It cost us (USA) roughly $1,188,263,000,000 to kill that guy. But we #winning though. Haaaa. (Sarcasm).”

You can understand that that might be misunderstood in an emotional moment. He stood tall when he was flooded with negative replies. “Whatever happened to our freedom of speech? That's the problem. We don't want to hear anything that isn't our perspective.”

Finally, he got his message across. “What I'm sayin has nothing to do with 9/11 or that guy. I still feel bad for the 9/11 families but I feel EQUALLY bad for the war families.” 

To everybody supporting me, I’m fine. I have very thick skin. How I feel hasn’t changed the least bit. Anyway, “God bless America”less than a minute ago via Echofon Favorite Retweet ReplyFRESH
