RG3 sings 'Billie Jean' on Instagram then debates social media habits

BY Brett Smiley • February 9, 2015

This is a story about quarterback Robert Griffin III, a classic Michael Jackson song, a disgruntled Washington Redskins fan, and divergent views on how a professional athlete ought to conduct himself on social media. Put another way, it's kind of weird.

Here's the video that Griffin -- conspicuously absent from a recent Washington mailing about the future of the team -- posted Monday morning that sparked a debate. 

Naturally, critics emerged in the comments.

“This is why you will be cut after next year in Washington,” Instagram user @cperezrn wrote. “Why you weren’t even mentioned as the future. You are a ‘QB’. Act like one." The user elaborated, “He cares more about his brand, social media than working in his craft. After the 2016 seasons respond back to me if I am wrong. He will be cut by the Redskins after those years. Brees, Brady, Rodgers, Manning don’t act this way. Very simple observation."
