Late Saturday night, things got hectic on Twitter between Eagles running back LeSean McCoy and his son’s mother Steph. There were complaints about child support, accusations of dirty naughty bits and more. Soon after, LeSean realized that airing all that via his verified Twitter account might not have been the best move so he did what most embarrassed athlete or celeb does after they mess up on a social network… claimed the account was hacked and then delete the account. By Monday after he probably received calls from his agent, publicist, team etc, LeSean came to his senses and issued an apology for the slip up. “I would like to express how deeply sorry and remorseful I am to my family, the Philadelphia Eagles, my fans, and every young person who views me as a role model,” McCoy said in the statement. “This is not who I am as a person, nor the image I ever wanted to portray of myself. It’s definitely not the example I want to set for my son.” “Due to my bad judgment and frustration, I allowed a very personal matter to be played out on a social network, of all things,” McCoy said. “It was immature and unprofessional for me to do so and to encourage others to join in.” “I take great pride in being a good father and strive to one day be a great one,” McCoy said. “I’ve always done everything in my means to provide for my son financially, emotionally, and most importantly with my time and heart. I am sick over the fact that my actions have caused pain to him and all involved. I have decided to handle this matter privately from here on out and I thank everyone for their continued support.” Now on to the next…
