Marcus Vick stirred up a controversy on Twitter, and again he’s trying to use the excuse that he was hacked.

Marcus Vick, who is the younger brother of Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick, offered a $1,000 bounty to a defensive player to light up Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper with a hit. Cooper drew headlines on Wednesday when video emerged of him using a despicable racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert.

After Marcus’ comments went viral, he tried to backtrack.

“My page was hacked!” he wrote in a since-deleted tweet.

Not even the biggest Vick fan in the world was buying that line. But then Vick said he was going to delete his Twitter:

Vick hasn’t deleted his account yet, but he should probably consider it. After all, look at all the times it’s gotten him in trouble:

  • What a piece of crap. He goes off and says things and then doesn't even have the guts to own up to what he says. Just shut-up jerk!
