Keyshawn Johnson Jr. Stood By Embarrassed As His Father And A Sports Reporter Bickered About Him On Twitter
That exchange right there? The one where Keyshawn Johnson defended his son's honor when it was unintentionally questioned? That was the online equivalent of a high school player looking on completely embarrassed as his father yells at the coach about playing time from the crowd. I'm not here to hate on how anyone handled this situation, just bringing light to exactly what the situation is. This reporter almost started a shit storm because - ironically - he doesn't know how to use words and doesn't understand implications, and Keyshawn Johnson reacted accordingly. I'm sure Mitch Sherman wasn't doubting whether a much sought after 4-star recruit like Keyshawn Jr. was going to catch some passes in his career, but I'll be damned if you couldn't infer that from his original statement. Fucking Mitch, just sitting there poking and prodding a man known for his inability to shut up while that man's son looks on humiliated. Not understanding that a parent is going to do their damnedest to protect the nest from even the most harmless of predators whether it makes them look stupid or not. Even mention that his son not catching a pass during his college career is a possibility and Keyshawn is coming out of the bleachers to give you a piece of his mind. He'll look down at his phone after to see a text message from his son that says "DAD! STOP!", but there's no chance he wouldn't do the same damn thing again in the future. My advice to the three parties involved? Mitch, tweet better. Keyshawn, relax. Keyshawn Jr., get used to it.
