Fans react to the Cleveland Browns' release of safety Jermaine Whitehead after racist, violent tweets are posted from his account

Whitehead’s Twitter account was quickly suspended, and the Browns released a statement saying: “The Browns in no way condone that type of language or behavior."

CLEVELAND — On Monday’s Lunch Break with Jay Crawford, we chewed over the Cleveland Browns releasing safety Jermaine Whitehead after racist, violent tweets were posted from his Twitter account.

The Browns announced on Monday that Whitehead was cut from the team’s roster after tweets threatening the life of The Bull and The Fox radio host Dustin Fox were posted from his Twitter page just minutes after Sunday’s loss to the Denver Broncos.

In the immediate aftermath, Whitehead’s account was quickly suspended, and the Browns released a statement saying: “The Browns in no way condone that type of language or behavior. This matter will be further addressed internally."
