I have a feeling this thread is going to have a better home in Too Hot. Don't mean to send it that way, but there are some important considerations here. I've gone round and round with one or two posters (including @mdfgator) about the offensive nature of the word "retard." Some will not agree and that's ok, but if you have any personal or professional relationship with people who possess intellectual disabilities, you understand that words matter. I'll do my best to leave it at that. And that said, I think it's quite unfortunate that JJ was fired subsequent to this particular tweet. The tweet itself is not anywhere near a fireable offense for an NFL player, imo. Unfortunately, he couldn't wipe the stupid away enough to recover, respond appropriately, and maybe even learn something. Actually, he responded in a way that suggests he's incapable of learning this particular important social lesson. Too bad that he's paying a steep price for that.
