The never-ending embarrassment that is Chiefs running back Larry Johnson vented on Twitter last night about Coach Todd Haley and blasted fans, calling them poor and saying a fan critical of his poor play -- "Hey LJ, is it Haley's fault you fall when D-Linemen blow on you?" -- has a "fag pic." Thanks to Arrowhead Pride, you can read most of King Pink's tweets.
Red Zone, The Kansas City Star's blog about the Chiefs, says Johnson confirmed that the Twitter account belongs to him and the "Toon Icon" is one of LJ's nicknames.
The blow back from fans didn't appear personal. DrewK30 wrote: "@ToonIcon You have the same amount of TDs this year that I have." And "@ToonIcon Sorry to tell you, but you're one of the reasons why the Chiefs are where they are."
Those posts ed Johnson to say the fan was "broke"and call the guy a "lil gril," which was probably supposed to read "lil girl."
Criticism of Johnson isn't unfair. Look at his stats. The 29-year-old's best days appear to be over.
