SEC blasted for Photoshopping Henry’s tattoos out of its Player of the Year tweet
Tattoos are apparently taboo – at least in the SEC. Wednesday, Alabama running back Derrick Henry, the Heisman Trophy front-runner, was named the SEC’s Offensive Player of the Year. As such, the league tweeted out both an article and a photo to congratulate him on the accomplishment. But there was one interesting omission.
Henry’s arm tattoos are missing from the photo. It appears that they’ve been Photoshopped out.
Needless to say, fans noticed.

We’ll see if the league addresses the issue. Henry certainly isn’t the only football player in the SEC who is covered in ink.
.@SEC But seriously though, why did you photoshop out his tattoos?
