New York Jets' Sione Pouha says Buffalo Bills WR Stevie Johnson's crash celebration insensitive to 9/11 victims
Jets nose tackle Sione Pouha wasn't laughing at Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson's touchdown celebration over the weekend in New York.
He wasn't laughing then and he's certainly not laughing now. In fact, Pouha isn't even that mad at Johnson for pretending to "pull a Plaxico Burress" and shoot himself in the leg. What has him fuming? The fact that Johnson pretended to be a crashing jet, according to the New York Post.
Pouha believes that when Johnson acted as if he was a plane crashing to the ground, that it was insensitive to the victims of 9/11.
"Us being from New York, we like to hold ourselves to some integrity, and that airplane thing, in my opinion, was kind of a dagger considering the circumstances of remembrance of what we just had on Sept. 11," Pouha said. “It was just unprofessional. We all stand for pride around here, and that's a sacred moment for a lot of people and it's a very sobering moment."
