Florida Times-Union reporter Ryan O'Halloran criticized Jaguars defensive end Chris Clemons on Twitter.
The Jaguars’ season ended with a 30–6 loss to the Houston Texans in Week 17. Clemons recorded no tackles, then apparently had harsh words for O’Halloran after the game.
O’Halloran started the exchange on Twitter by publishing a quote from the post-game locker room, alleging Clemons insulted him with a vulgar term.
O’Halloran then alleged Clemons described the media as racist.
Clemons also called Jax media as a whole racist and unwilling to talk to African-American players ... as I was talking to Davon House— Ryan O'Halloran (@ryanohalloran) January 3, 2016
The tweets prompted Clemons to respond.
Then O’Halloran continued the exchange.
