Bills’ Receiver Stevie Johnson Jokes That North Korea Should Bomb Foxborough, Mass. First

Stevie Johnson North Korea Tweets

It’s a simple rule: think before you tweet. Yet, many pro athletes seem to struggle with the concept. Take Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson, please, and hide him because this could get ugly. 

On Wednesday, Johnson, like many U.S. citizens, heard the threats of nuclear attack coming from North Korea. He noted North Korea’s military sabre-rattling on his Twitter (the same account on which he blamed God for a dropped TD pass in 2010).

All good. An NFL player has as much right to comment on international affairs and foreign policy as Wolf Blitzer, or Dennis Rodman for that matter, but Johnson couldn’t let it go. He took it a step further by suggesting a target for North Korea’s first missile: Foxborough, Mass. — home base of the New England Patriots, the perennial AFC East champs who have beaten Johnson and the Bills 17 of the last 18 times the teams have played.

Naturally, Twitter went crazy, and Johnson had to backpedal a bit. While he certainly wasn’t giving out map coordinates of Gillette Stadium, plenty of fans didn’t appreciate the implication of Johnson’s tweet.

Yeah, great for whom? Certainly not Johnson, who will likely be the target of a relentless F-bomb campaign when the Bills visit the Patriots in 2013.
