Default Rashard Mendenhall Twitter Remarks About Osama bin Laden Will Cause Backlash

http://burgh.us/4m3

Here's exactly what he said: @R_Mendenhall

What kind of person celebrates death? It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side....

What does everyone else think about this? Was he right? Was he wrong?

Just another stupid thing to say like the slavery remark.

One need not know Bin LAden personally to recognize, from his own words no less, that he encouraged extremism and violence while endorsing beliefs that deprived rights to women and homosexuals and running terrorist roganizations that left societies under draconian law. While Mendenhall may be right that people's celebrations were excessive, the "you only know hafl teh story" remark makes me smirk.

Further evidence we root for these guys on the field and probably do not want to know about their moronic conduct off of it (see, e.g,, B. Roethlisberger)

Ohhhhhhhhhhh booooooooooooyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy....Rashard.

I heard this man...over an over. I saw what this man did. I saw what he wanted. I hate this man. I hate his soul......I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy he is dead. DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD!!!!

I celebrate with ever essence of my being. I HATE BIN LADEN. BURN IN HADES!!!

Rashard.....I enjoy watching you play football. But I would bet you will find very little sympathy if you said this. 3000 dead Americans and others families hate this man.

I HATE THIS DEAD SCUMBAG!!! I HATE HIM!!!

Hope you get the idea.

Ya know......I wonder if Mr Rooney will need to do some house cleaning. This man has either no brain or is not deserving to be a Steeler. I mean we got rid of a top reciever for acting childish. This man is not Pittsburgh Steeler worthy. He is not just childish.....he is something more. He feels for Bin Laden?!?!?!

Mr Rooney......check into this mans true beliefs. He may need to go.........................SOON!!!! I hope it was a case of mouth before brain and not his real feelings. Shame on you Rashard!!!

This is going to blow up

Bob Smizik has the comments up on his blog with this observation

Someone on the Steelers or someone who cares about him needs to reach out to running back Rashard Mendenhall and tell him to shut up.

http://communityvoices.sites.post-ga...n-ladens-death

As you might expect, the comments on Smizik's blog about Mendenhall's thoughts are scathing

to say we only know one side of the story is ridiculous. Maybe he means we only sympathize with one side of the story, I don't know. Mendenhall needs to shut his mouth in public.

Smizik is DEAD ON!!!! Rashard....................you dont deserve to make a fortune playing for fans that love America. Go play dead goats head horse racing in Afganhnistan. Maybe your Al Queda buddies will pay you....probably will if you love that demon.

Leave the Steelers you creep!!!!

God Rashard, I love you sometimes but you need to cool it with these remarks. You're making yourself look like an idiot.

I'm not for bin laden but just because Rashard believes in something doesn't mean he should be kicked off the team for it... come on guys a little extreme
