Roddy White calls someone a 'peasant' on Twitter

BY foxsports • September 4, 2013

By Sid Saraf, Here we go. Falcons wide receiver Roddy White is a professional football player who was forced to work on Labor Day. Oh, good heavens, what a tragedy. Actually, in all honesty, that does suck. I've worked several Labor Days and there was always a twinge of annoyance running through my mind. There's nothing wrong with that. White took to Twitter to share his thoughts of being at the team facility while most of America was out grilling hot dogs and drinking beer.

That's when things went south. Some "fan" tweeted this in return:

  That's when Roddy got annoyed and took out the twitter equivalent of a flame thrower:

Ohhh, snap!! Did Roddy just bust out "peasant?" That's awesome.

Roddy did backtrack a bit a couple tweets later:

  I can relate to Roddy in this situation. We all have said things we wish we could rephrase a couple minutes later. It happens. And in the grand scheme of things, "peasant" isn't the worst insult in the world. In fact, it's kinda funny. Mr. White just needs to be a bit more careful with his words in the future. Questions?
