Stevie Johnson jokingly suggests North Korea bomb Foxborough
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson likes to be in the spotlight. When he's not dropping game-winning touchdown passes, he's getting fined for his wacky touchdown celebrations.
So when a photograph of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un surfaced last week with a map in the background showing potential missile targets in the mainland United States, Johnson felt it was his time to make light of the situation.
North Korea tripping hard AF right now. Chill out with that Nuke talk. #uMadBro— STVN (@StevieJohnson13) April 3, 2013
War is nothing to be played with. I apologize North Korea........but if y'all do bomb 1st... Bomb Foxboro, Mass. Sincerely,#BillsMafia— STVN (@StevieJohnson13) April 3, 2013
It goes without saying, of course, that Johnson is trying to make a joke. He doesn't really want to see Foxborough get nuked.
He said as much a few hours later following the inevitable Twitter-rage from his followers.
