LeSean McCoy deletes account after Twitter fight with baby mama
A simple tweet about vacationing in Puerto Rico blew up into Twitter feud after LeSean McCoy and his baby mama exchanged Tweets back and forth disparaging each other as well as dragging in the baby and money issues among other things into the fight last night. The online record of the fight is no longer available after LeSean McCoy deleted his account but his supposedly baby mama Steph’s account is still active on Twitter.
After correcting LeSean McCoy on his spelling (vocation to vacation), the woman criticized McCoy for not spending enough time with their son, accused him of having STDs and made other disparaging comments about the father of her baby, who was born in April.
LeSean McCoy also wouldn’t back down in the fight, calling out Steph for being a “nobody” trying to make her name off their son, as well as a “Broke bum” incapable of getting a job and living off child support. Moreover, LeSean McCoy urged his Twitter fans to join in at harassing his baby mama.
The 24-year-old LeSean McCoy tweeted, “Tell @Angelface0330 (Steph’s Twitter handle) to get a job n stop begging for child support money she a BUM needs me to LIVE sad!!!”
LeSean McCoy also professed to having slept with Steph within a week of meeting her and still not knowing his baby mama’s name. By that statement LeSean McCoy’s indirectly suggesting that his baby mama is hurling groundless accusation and inaccuracies on the social media websites.
The 2011 All-Pro LeSean McCoy continued to exact his revenge by retweeting his fan’s equally disparaging comments regarding his baby mama. But somewhere down the road LeSean McCoy realized his actions were reprehensible to the general public (including Miami Hurricanes running back Duke Johnson).
Switching into damage control mode, LeSean McCoy posted a final tweet that his account had been hacked before deleting it.
While social media is a great tool for athletes market themselves and a sound medium to interact with their fans, it can become a headache when used in spiteful ways such as in LeSean McCoy’s case.
It is unlikely NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will take a disciplining measure against LeSean McCoy, due to it being a personal issue, but it’s never wise to air your dirty laundry on the social media. Moreover, it could be interesting seeing how first-time NFL head coach Chip Kelly handles off-field issues, such as the one at hand.
