DeSean Jackson Explains ‘Pot’ Tweet
By Spike Eskin
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles have not had a ton of luck on Twitter over the last couple of years. From Jason Babin arguing with fans, to LeSean McCoy’s situation with the mother of his son, it doesn’t seem like the players have always totally grasped the possible repercussions of what they say.
So when DeSean Jackson tweeted a picture of an E-Card last week that said “I’m high on life. Or pot. Ok, it’s just the pot. Hahaha. haha. ha. [expletive],” it seemed like it would be another Eagles player misstep on Twitter. Probably realizing the stir it would cause, Jackson deleted the tweeted about ten minutes later.
In an interview with Comcast Sportsnet’s Derrick Gunn, Jackson was asked about the tweet, and what it meant.
“I’m talking about Jaccpot,” Jackson told Gunn, referring to the wide receiver’s record label. “Two C’s, two C’s to the p-o-t, that’s the pot so, as far as anything else, I’m a role model, I look up to people that’s doing the right things, and I want people to look up to me in the same way. You know, kids and the whole nine. So, you know that clarifies me, two C’s, and the pot is J-A-C-C-P-O-T that’s Jaccpot, so that clarifies it.”
Yes, that just about clarifies it.
