Terrell Owens Madden NFL

UPDATE: In an update on the below article, EA Sports has since apologized to Owens.

ORIGINAL: The EA Madden NFL twitter account may have bitten off more than it could chew with a shot at (eventual) NFL Hall of Fame Wide Receiver Terrell Owens.

All Owens did was send out a tweet saying that he needed football in his life, prompting the official Madden twitter account to respond with the following attempt at humor. Please note that the tweet has since been deleted.

EA Sports Madden NFL Twitter referencing the latest reasoning (or excuse depending on how you talk to) for leaving Owens out of the Hall of Fame voting this year.

Needless to say, Owens didn’t take too kindly to the cheap shot thrown his way. He responded with a pair of tweets by exposing EA for underpaying former players for likeness in their game.

Whomever sent the tweet clearly attempted to take a dig at why Owens (allegedly) didn’t make the Hall of Fame this year, but ended up looking foolish enough to force a deletion. It should be a lesson to anyone looking to take veiled shot at someone on social media.

If you can dish it out, you better be ready to take whatever comes back at you.
