1. Remember that day last year when LeSean McCoy became the biggest villain on social media because he went on Twitter and decided to spoil Avengers: Endgame for everyone?
The Chiefs running back appeared on Wednesday's Good Morning Football and admitted that those tweets were "the worst decision of my life." He also offered an apology and tremendous explanation.
"I didn't know the reaction of the people," McCoy said. "I didn't know that. If I knew that, I never would've tweeted that. I didn't know that people really got into them cartoons like that."
I DIDN'T KNOW PEOPLE REALLY GO INTO THEM CARTOONS LIKE THAT!!!
I'm not a Marvel guy, so I can laugh and be highly amused at McCoy basically comparing Avengers to Bugs Bunny or The Flintstones. But, man, he just pissed off a whole other wave of people.
However, if you watch the entire clip of McCoy talking about what happened with the tweets and explaining that he took his son to see the movie and that he interviews his son about everything, it's actually quite touching.
