Johnson Barred From Team Activities for Slur on Twitter


The Twitter account of Chiefs running back Larry Johnson have gotten him barred from team activities pending an investigation into his use of a homosexual slur this week. Johnson did apologize Tuesday to his team, fans and the NFL “for the words I used.”

“I regret my actions. The words were used by me in frustration, and they were not appropriate,” he said. “I did not intend to offend anyone, but that is no excuse for what I said.” Johnson posted the slur on his Twitter account Sunday in a response to another tweet. On Monday, he said it again in refusing to talk with reporters, according to a recording made by the Kansas City Star.

The Chiefs and the NFL are investigating.

    Larry Johnson seems to of lost all passion for the game. Member when he was back up to Priest Holmes and actually had to fight for playing time? He was a beast! Now there is no one pushing him… Check out KcSportsHub.blogspot.com for an article on how bad the Chiefs offense is.
