Browns release Jermaine Whitehead after social media rant
By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher
The Cleveland Browns wasted no time in ridding themselves of safety Jermaine Whitehead. He went on a social media rant, where he threatened to kill more than one person.
The team said his language was “unacceptable” after the game. In addition, his Twitter account was suspended due to the language that he used.
Cleveland lost a close game to the woeful, Denver Broncos, on Sunday with a 24-19 loss. That’s when Whitehead went off on social media a short time later.
During one exchange, “Imma kill you (expletive).. that’s on blood.” Unlike his Instagram account that is verified, the Twitter account that he allegedly used to say this was from an unverified account with no blue check mark.
“Jermaine Whitehead’s social media posts following today’s game were totally unacceptable and highly inappropriate,” the Browns said in a statement. “We immediately spoke with Jermaine upon learning of these comments. The Browns in no way condone that type of language or behavior.”
