RG3 gets called out for apparently taking credit for Cavs’ title graphic (UPDATE)
The Cavaliers are riding high in Cleveland, after just ending the city’s 52-year pro championship drought. And everyone wants a piece of them, apparently even the new Browns quarterback Robert Griffin III.
RG3 tweeted a graphic of the Cavaliers with a congratulatory message. But if you look in the lower left-hand corner of the graphic, it reads @2016 Robert Griffin III.

Now, we all know Griffin is pretty talented on the football field, but is the oft-injured quarterback moonlighting as a graphic designer, too?
It doesn’t appear so. Though maybe he hired someone to manage his account, and this was not RG3’s doing? Robert, you might want to use that excuse.
Here’s the original the Cavs tweeted after the team won the title. Check the lower right-hand and left-hand corners of their graphic.

One person on Twitter, who lists himself as the Cavs web designer and is followed by the team, called out RG3.

Griffin might want to retweet this and use the original version.
UPDATE: Griffin apparently uses a popular social media app called WhoSay, which automatically places his custom logo on photos. The photo below is a wire image that has his logo on it.

But he’s also tweeted images that did not have his logo on it, too. So it appears Griffin, or whoever is handling his Twitter account, isn’t consistently using this app.
