As Twitchy reported earlier, USA Today wrote an entire story about Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray’s ‘homophobic tweets’ from when he was FIFTEEN YEARS OLD on the very night the young man won the trophy.

We’re not even making this up. What sort of stick-up-his-as* journo would go after a kid for well … being a kid. God forbid if Twitter had existed when this editor was 15 years old. Yikes.

Several people in social media are pissed off at USA Today and the guy who wrote the garbage, Scott Gleeson, and rightfully so.

Truth.

That’s one word for him.

Oh, it gets better.

Full disclosure, this editor did a search on Scott Gleeson’s handle and the word ‘gay’ on Twitter just for sh*ts and giggles and boy howdy, Gleeson spends a lot of time writing about gay athletes and of course, homophobia. So this and his resume beg the question, was Gleeson sitting on these tweets from Kyler waiting to ‘pounce’ with them if and when he won the Heisman?

Who DOES that?

You know what, don’t answer that.

Yup.

‘Nuff said.
