UPDATE: Hey guess what, Kenyon Martin says he didn't say that. He tweeted: "This is Kenyon folks I didn't write that about the aids! I can say some sh-- but I'm not that f---ing crazy."

Kenyon Martin has always had the reputation of being a tough guy. The tattoos, the attitude, the care-free way he talks -- everyone knows Martin's not a guy to be trifled with.

Well, he's taken that same attitude to Twitter. Martin went on a profanity laced tirade Sunday against "haters" and didn't hold back. Observe what he closed with:

I don't know if this makes me a "hater," but Kenyon Martin probably should be grounded from Twitter. That tweet was probably the tamest of his tirade. You can just check his feed if you want to see what he had to say directly.

This is sort of the shame of Twitter though. We get players uncensored for once. We get them away from their PR people, away from the locker room and in a place where they're going to mostly be themselves. Which is great -- and terrifying. We all knew Kenyon Martin isn't a choir boy and that he's going to say and do what he wants, but I really hope he doesn't want everyone to catch "full blown" AIDS and die. (What would half blown AIDS be?)

Nut job!  The guy makes a huge amount of money and plays less then half the time because of injuries.  He is a decent player when healthy but disruptive and was hugely over paid.  The guy should be thankful for all the money that was thrown at him and keep his mouth shut.

``Sorry this page does not exist`` I guess he cracked under the pressure. Twitter is hilarious to me because everyday folks can just crap all over celebs, athletes. There have been so many people who couldn`t handle it, and had to delete there accounts.

Kenyon's twitter account was obviously hacked by the same hater that seized Kenny Britt's account and wrote those nasty things about Commissioner "Godell". These professional athletes should really use more strongly encrypted passwords!

Dude is Crazy. Thats a bit harsh. Funny how he makes news, hes not even that great. Guess I'm a hater? Or am I a paying customer that can have an opinion? How you answer that determines if your crazy.

Kenyon Martin is an angry person...

… And a dumb one too.

Can’t understand professional athletes that create twitter accounts and don’t know how to deal with the comments. Easy to solve. Close the twitter account and shut up. If he wants an ego massage I’m pretty shore he can get one from the people in his staff. Starting to understand why some owners don’t want to pay so much money to some players…

The NBA commissioner and the NBPA are deteriorating NBA image quiet well by themselves. They don’t need help, so players that will won several million dollars to play basketball in the next few years shouldn’t be adding more wood to the fire.

If Mr. Martin didn’t think about the magnitude of his words then is dumber than he looks. A huge apology for all the HIV and AIDS patients that contracted the decease involuntarily is owned. And I’m pretty sure that it shouldn’t be on twitter.

I don't care how "Hard" you think you are,  an influence such as ThugMart is good for no one.  You can't tell me that his kids don't follow him on twitter........
I would be curious to hear the conversation between he and his son when his son asks him what he meant by that.

I'd be angry too, if I had such an easy life making Millions playing a GAME.......  Freedom of speech is our constitutional right, Freedom to be a Punk Ass Thug would land him in the Pen for life if not for the game....  There is always someone more bad ass than you Kenyon......

Whenever Kenyon's anger issues come up his mother and sister rise to his defense.  What I know is that my niece and nephews went to High School with him at Bryan Adams in East Dallas.  That he went to Cincinnati, become a player of the year and a pro are all great for the school.  But he is remembered by many as an angry, surly, stay out of my way guy when he was in high school.  Martin has used that anger to make himself a good and sometimes great player but he seems to see no need to filter what he feels and believes.
