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?)
