Ravens Player Patrick Ricard Has Old N-Word-Laden Tweets Resurface
Forgotten tweets have landed public figures in a LOT of trouble recently and today we have yet another example of why people need to be more thoughtful about what they post on social media, especially Twitter.
According to ESPN, Baltimore Ravens fullback and defensive lineman Patrick Ricard had numerous old n-word laden tweets from 2011 and 2012 reemerge this past weekend. There were at least 6 tweets where Ricard free used the slur.
“I want to sincerely apologize for my inappropriate and unacceptable tweets,” he said. “I was a 16-year-old kid in high school who clearly made bad choices. Those words do not reflect who I am today.”
Ironically, Ricard has previously been given the nickname “Project Pat” because he plays both offense and defense. The Ravens addressed the tweets prior to the game yesterday:
“The tweets are totally unacceptable, and we have addressed the matter with Pat.”
Oooooh, big condemnation…
