USA Today Faces Backlash After Shaming Heisman Winner for Tweets Posted When He Was 15 - Called His Friend a "Queer" So 6 Years Later USAToday Has to Ruin the Greatest Day of His Life

  - Called His Friend a "Queer" So 6 Years Later USAToday Has to Ruin the Greatest Day of His Life

Kyler Murray won one of college football’s highest honors on Saturday as he was awarded the Heisman Trophy for his excellence as quarterback for Oklahoma, but USA Today wasn’t focused on his football accomplishments.

In a report published late Saturday night, USA Today dug up several tweets and claimed that Murray had made homophobic statements on Twitter. According to the report, Murray called one of his friends a “queer” in 2012. He was 15 years old at the time of the tweet.

In response to this hit from USA Today, Murray humbly apologized for the comments he had made when he was a teen. He penned the apology in the early hours of Sunday morning, just hours after he won the Heisman Trophy.

Kyler Murray @TheKylerMurray

I apologize for the tweets that have come to light tonight from when I was 14 and 15. I used a poor choice of word that doesn’t reflect who I am or what I believe. I did not intend to single out any individual or group.

Still, his apology wasn’t enough for USA Today. They slammed him on Twitter for not deleting the old tweets as soon as he was hit with the story — at two in the morning, central time.

 Fuck that corporate whore rag... "USgAy Today",

...AmriKa's Elites first early attempt to incorporate printed Fake & Fluff, "nooze" media into a One Nation-Newspaper Order..... it never took off like they wanted it to, thankfully it's just ended up being more useful as bird cage liners, outhouse wipe-paper and wood-stove starter fodder...

.....gotta match???

Way to go; U S A Today. It may be time for some of your people to revisit all their old tweets and start deleting the ones they don't want anyone to read. It would be very embarrassing for an "outer" to be "outed".
