WEEI.com: Bucks swingman Chris Douglas-Roberts and Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall were not pleased with the celebrations that broke out all over America after the announcement that Osama bin Laden had been killed.
Douglas-Roberts said it made Americans look like the Taliban after 9/11. "We just looked like the Afghan people, a decade later," he said. "That's not what we should be doing, celebrating with beers and all that. I didn't agree with that. That's just me."
Mendenhall, who suggested a conspiracy on 9/11, took it a step further. "What kind of person celebrates death?" he tweeted. "It's amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We've only heard one side."
I honestly have no words for the above article, just pure anger....especially for Mendenhall's comment. First he's a Steeler, and now this comment cements his place in the "Karl Malone hate" category....the most elite category of hate there is in my world.
I wish Pedroia could hit one of his line drive lasers at Mendenall's dome right now.
There is no reason for me to post this outside of the need to feel some kind of stress release when hitting the "publish" button.
