For those of you who didn’t already think someone needs to ban Roddy White from Twitter, this should officially seal the deal. On Thursday, Freeh’s firm produced a 267-page report from their eight-month investigation into the Penn State scandal. The investigation revealed that Joe Paterno and other Penn State officials covered up child abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky in order to protect the image of the football program.

Freeh said in a news conference that Paterno “was an integral part of this active decision to conceal” and deserved to be fired. White apparently disagrees and decided to send this incredibly insensitive string of tweets to share his thoughts with the public.

Simply put, Roddy agrees with JoePa’s decision to continuously hide the fact that children were being sexually abused because it would have damaged the program. Not only that, but he would allow his kid to play football at Penn State because Sandusky was not raping actual football players. Somebody take this man’s smartphone away, please. Naturally, the internet began buzzing about how stupid he is and White tried to backtrack.

What is there to twist? His message was clear: Despite an investigation revealing that Paterno covered for a child rapist, White does not feel that he is to blame. We’ve seen Roddy write some incredibly dumb things on Twitter before, but these comments easily blow those ones out of the water. Truly amazing.
