I can respect this. We all get caught up from time to time, but you just have to man up and admit you made a mistake and keep it moving. It was unfortunate that LeSean McCoy let his personal business spill over into Social Media, but it won’t be the first or last time someone has that type of lapse in judgement. LeSean McCoy & Baby Mama Twitter Battle About Child Support & Herpes (Photos) The important thing is to just make sure it doesn’t happen again. Shady sent us his official statement about the incident. In light of the recent events that played out over Twitter this past weekend, 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. 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. My Twitter account was not hacked. I take full responsibility and I apologize for trying to make it seem like it was not me. Due to my bad judgment and frustration, I allowed a very personal matter to be played out on a social network, of all things. It was immature and unprofessional for me to do so and to encourage others to join in. As a parent , emotions are often magnified when there are stressful and emotional situations concerning them.I take great pride in being a good father and strive to one day be a great one. 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.
