The joke isn’t original and it’s pretty old. On the bright side it’s probably somewhat tame compared to what Te’o will hear on the field, in the stands, and from media in larger markets when the season starts this fall. But it’s not the ideal start for a guy who’s just trying to put the past in the past.
Leave Te’o alone! Sorry Spears reference there. The point is, our society can’t help ourselves. We mock those who got exposed and it becomes a form of bullying. Te’o has taken enough flak and we just kind of need to drop the subject. Why can’t we accept him for his foolish mistake and move on? Wait am I contributing to the issue by posting the above tweet and cartoon? Whoops.
I’ll at least end this post with this. I live in San Diego and I can’t wait to see this kid play. San Diego….SUPER CHARGERS!
