Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson ruffled some feathers on Sunday night after sending a profanity-filled tweet to a fan after Baltimore’s 28-27 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Jackson quickly deleted the tweet, which had nearly 15,000 likes before it was deleted, but the 25-year-old QB did not emerge unscathed from the incident as Ravens head coach John Harbaugh , revealed that he spoke with Jackson about his anger-fueled actions.
“Really (I) beg guys not to get into the world of Twitter right after the game, especially after a loss,” Harbaugh told reporters In Monday. “It will never be positive, it will not be a pleasant place. I think that’s reflected in Lamar’s answer because what he said was so irrelevant to him. It’s not his way of speaking. It’s not his way of speaking. These are not the words he ever uses. I’ve never heard him say things like that before. …I’m sure he’s frustrated, just like we all are. It’s just a place you don’t want to live right after a game. I know he understands that.”
Harbaugh added that Jackson’s competitive nature got the better of him and he needs to improve on his struggles with getting baited on social media.
