NY Giants WR Victor Cruz Signs $43 Million Contract then Tweets Threat … “Zimmerman Doesn’t Last Year Before the Hood Catches Up To Him” … Then Apologizes and Deletes Tweet
Former NBA star Charles Barkley was right, athletes should not role models.
So what do NFL athletes do after they sign a 5 year, $43 million contract? They go on Twitter and tweet irresponsible, inflammatory and vigilante comments. Such was the case following the George Zimmerman verdict when a jury of six woman determined that Zimmerman was “not guilty” of murder or manslaughter in the death of Trayvon Martin. The New York Giants recent $43 million man, Victor Cruz, decided to ignorantly fan the flames of vigilantism and interject himself into a racially heated subject of George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. Following the verdict, Victor Cruz tweeted, “… Zimmerman doesn’t last a year before the hood catches up to him.” Are you kidding me? Just what the NFL needs, another player acting all gangsta. You think that the NFL has had a black enough eye from the murder charges against former New England Patriot TE Aaron Hernandez. Should those in the NFL really be criticizing anyone with the arrest record of their players since last years Super Bowl? Individuals like Cruz et all need to shut up and play.
A note to Victor Cruz, it’s not just blacks who by your jersey.
But then as reported by the NY Post, the brave, brash and scholar of the George Zimmerman murder trial deleted his tweet. Cruz stated that he realized his tweet was wrong and has apologized. Actually, he most lokely got a text from his agent or Giant management that said, WTF … delete the tweet, or we will delete your $43 million contract.
Upon further view, Victor Cruz shouldn’t have predicted a vigilante death for George Zimmerman.
The Giants popular and squeaky clean wide receiver apologized this afternoon for an unfortunate tweet he wrote last night, moments after the neighborhood watch volunteer was cleared on all charges.
“My tweet last night was my initial interpretation of the reaction I was reading on twitter. I immediately realized my tweet was a mistake and I apologize, that’s why I deleted it,” Cruz said a Twitter statement today. “I believe conversation not confrontation leads to change and progress.”
Here are a bunch of many more irresponsible tweets from athletes who most likely did not watch any of the George Zimmerman trial or even understand Florida’s self defense laws.
UPDATE I: Hollywood liberal celebrities react to George Zimmerman verdict. I wonder if the roles were reversed and Trayvon had killed Zimmerman if all of these tweets would be the same? Oh the hypocrisy. Hmm, wasn’t it the Hollywood LEFT who backed cop killer, Mumia Abu-Jamal?

Very few of the athletes playing in the NFL have a real education. They are all about opinion taken from media.
He may have been telling the truth regarding what George faces. There are plenty of blacks that would attack George to avenge Trayvon’s death. Look at the gang behavior in cities like Chicago, Detroit, LA and others.
What kind of justice is this? We have sports stars trying to be the judge, jury and executioner. Does this guy know that we have a constitution and a body of laws? As Americans, we have a right to bear arms and protect ourselves. This right is not for just a few of us. It’s for all of us. The Giants need to hire people who believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights for ALL PEOPLE not for a select few.
He’s probably just acting like you all did when Casey Anthony was found not guilty.
Only difference is that you all attacked the jurors as well.
SM: Did we riot? Did we threaten to kill people?
Oh and by the way, the prosecution in Casey Anthony did a far better job and presented far more evidence than they did in the Zimmerman case. You cant even compare the two and the fact that you are shows just how much of a joke you really are. BTW, Caylee was a child, an innocent 2 year old child who was murdered. Caylee Anthony had no responsibility in her death, you cant say the same for TM, sorry. I think it is terrible that he died, but enough of this he is an angel. TM was a 17 year old TM was a young man who got involved with a fight that turned into self defense.
I idea that you would compare the two cases just shows how ridiculous you really are.
And you know what we did … helped pass laws in the US to protect children from having this ever happen against to an innocent child.
I guess Victor Cruz will have Aaron Hernandez see if he cant murder himself another person.
-Did Cruz riot? No
-Did you folks threaten to kill people? You did it in the exact same manner that Cruz did it. It’s all right there on your website for all to see. Over and over and over.
Everything else is just your opinion. Means nada.
But go ahead and continue to attack a child that was murdered. Pathetic.
btw – I suppose you aren’t going to post the names of the Jurors from this trial on your website and call them insulting names and encourage folks to visit their homes and harass them like you did to the Casey Anthony jurors are you? Just curious.
SM: you are a fool if you think that the murder of a 2 year old child is the same as self defense. Nothing more than a troll fool. Get a clue.
I just wonder if you care about the dozens that are killed in Chicago every weekend?
BTW, I would dare say your opinion means less.
oh, and looky here, less than 1 business day after the verdict we have a book by a juror coming out.
The one that most said wasn’t paying attention just writing notes furiously?
Did she say she was dying to get on the trial?
Did she say she HATED the media but came on CNN less than 48hr after the verdict to hawk a book?
Can’t wait for the righties to defend this one ( since we all know that once Hannity made zimm a right/left issue, you all lock-stepped behind)
SM: HUH? Get some sleep dude, then get a clue. Its not a left/right issue … in Florida it was a self defense issue.
What is there to defend or not defend. Like they are the first juror to write a book? It is America, you are allowed to do things like this you know. Maybe you can have Eric Holder to the juror as well for civil rights violations.
