Bush in hot water over Chelsea tweet
Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush found himself in hot water with his Twitter followers for posting remarks about Nazis after German club Bayern Munich lost to England's Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League final Saturday.
Bush seemed to get a carried away watching Chelsea's comeback in a thrilling final, tweeting repeatedly during the penalty shootout, which the English Premier League club won 4-3.
With just two minutes left on the clock in regulation play, Chelsea striker Didier Drogba forced the game into extra-time with a bullet-like header that tied the score at 1-1. He then coolly slotted home the winning spot kick in the penalty shootout.
Given his scoring prowess on the field in Munich, Bush obviously thought Drogba might have the same luck with German women after the game. Unfortunately, he chose to bring up Germany's Nazi past as well.
"Shoot Drogba might even hit a Nazi chick tonight in Germany! LOL!" Bush tweeted.
His followers didn't find it funny, bombarding him with complaints via Twitter.
"Oh goodness bunch of sensitive cry babies on twitter! It's just jokes people send me your address and I'll personally FedEx you some tissue," Bush responded.
He then removed the offending tweet a short time later, writing, "There you go I deleted just for you guys! Big kiss."
Bush won the Super Bowl in 2010 with the New Orleans Saints. He became well known outside sporting circles when he was involved a personal relationship with reality TV star Kim Kardashian from 2007 until they broke up in early 2010.
