As Twitchy reported this morning, ESPN did not make a good call and angered viewers with its tribute to Jovan Belcher, who reportedly killed his girlfriend and then committed suicide yesterday. Outraged Twitter users wondered if there would be a tribute prior to today’s Chiefs-Panthers game.

Twitter users were livid at just the thought. Controversy? It shouldn’t even be in question.

The Kansas City Chiefs did not make the mistake that ESPM made. Prior to today’s game against the Carolina Panthers this afternoon, they held only a moment of silence for all victims of domestic violence.

Most found this appropriate. Or, at least not as inappropriate and disturbing as ESPN’s tribute to Belcher.

Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Kasandra Perkins’ family, and her beautiful child, now motherless.
