Some people were shocked that LeGrand would make light of such a life-changing moment, but he responded to the naysayers by assuring everyone he was comfortable with what had happened.
With my last tweet you guys can see that I have a sense of humor with my injury gotta enjoy life and laugh I know that cracked me up lol— Eric LeGrand (@EricLeGrand52) August 25, 2014
LeGrand makes a good point, but it is still a little odd to see such an awful moment used as a joke.
