Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Devin Bush is taking a lot of heat on Twitter after a number of fans found his take on a cat video out of line.
Bush posted a series of tweets, one of which was a retweet of a video of a cat falling to its death. The linebacker wrote in reaction, “The only time I have seen a cat not land on its feet omg !!”
Another confusing aspect of the video is that it’s from six years ago, meaning somehow Bush had to find the video, unless someone just sent it to him.
The bottom line is that the tweet was done in poor taste, and now it’s off Bush’s page. He should probably start make better decisions moving forward before he alienates his entire fan base, not only in Pittsburgh but across the NFL.
The cat video comes just a few days after Bush took to social media to criticize men on TikTok.
On July 1st, Bush took to Twitter and wrote, “If you a grown man & you got TikTok on yo phone stay TF from around me.”
After playing in all 16 games, starting 15 two years ago in his rookie season, Bush appeared in just five games in 2020 before he tore his ACL and missed the remainder of the year.
He’s expected to be back on the field for the start of the 2021 season.
