USA Today decided to dig into the social media of the newly crowned Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Oklahoma. According to the media, kids aren’t allowed to make any mistakes on social media EVER…or they’re vilified by the press.
The media trolled Kyler Murray’s social media for anything they could dig up from years ago. Murray is an exceptional athlete who excelled at both football and baseball. His hard work paid off but it appears as though USA Today wants to tarnish his reputation using tweets from when he was 14 and 15:
Hours after Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray won the Heisman Trophy, several homophobic tweets from his past resurfaced.
I apologize for the tweets that have come to light tonight from when I was 14 and 15. I used a poor choice of word that doesn’t reflect who I am or what I believe. I did not intend to single out any individual or group.

As a teenager, Murray used an anti-gay slur in a tweet to friends, USA Today reported. Oklahoma University did not respond to the newspaper’s request for comment.
The tweets were deleted from Murray’s account early Sunday.
The re-discovered tweets put Murray, 21, in the company of other athletes finding themselves in a negative light just as they achieve success.
What is it about the media that they target and try to destroy black men like Hollywood’s Kevin Hart and now Kyler Murray but ignore white women like Amy Schumer?
Why did USA Today go to so much trouble to dig up something from Murray on the day he won the Heisman Trophy? Why try and destroy a young man who worked so hard to make it to the top of his college sport?
Candace Owens tweeted asking why Kevin Hart was punished but Amy Schumer wasn’t:
Why not trash people like Amy Schumer? She has been ignored by the media even though she has tweeted out disgusting things as an adult.
Nick Cannon went back and found homophobic tweets from Sarah Silverman, Amy Schumer, and Chelsea Handler:
