Jones-Drew Wonders Why People Don’t Care Others Want to Kill Him

While apologizing for his tweets critical of Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, Maurice Jones-Drew wonders why there isn’t outrage about the death threats he has received since then.

So the Jacksonville Jaguars running back has taken the matter directly to his Twitter followers, retweeting the threats via @Jones_Drew32. When asked by an NFL fan Wednesday why he would dignify the comments, Jones-Drew replied “bc the world needs to see it.”

On Tuesday, Jones-Drew tweeted: “I guess death threats towards me and my family isn’t head line news but me tweeting my opinion about a person is… The society is backwards I guess we haven’t came far enough as human beings.

“When has a threat towards a person especially now. Has gone unspoken about on any national stage is outrages and unbelievable.”

Earlier Tuesday, Jones-Drew apologized for his tweets about Cutler.

“It was my opinion, but I never wanted to personally attack Jay,” Jones-Drew told The Florida Times-Union. “It’s something that I hope it blows over. I was trying to have fun, have a joke, and I think it was something I should’ve never tweeted and I’m sorry for it. It was never to hurt him. Hopefully he can understand that, and everyone else can.”

  2. It is kind of crazy what makes the news and what doesn’t. I can see SportsCenter is very bias in what they promote and report.

  3. Of course death threats are stupid and have to be taken seriously but the reason they are not getting the same media hype as the Cutler dig is simply because its part of the second act. The first act was making stupid tweets about a players heart.. the second part was in response to the first.. no first act, no second act..
