Dan Sileo fired after tweets about $1,000 bounty on FSU player


Dan Sileo was fired by sports radio station WMEN in Palm Beach on Monday, a day after he tweeted that he was offering $1,000 for a Miami player to take out a Florida State player in a potential ACC championship game rematch.

Here are the since-deleted tweets he sent (as captured by Tomahawk Nation):

Sileo tried to back up the train and say he was kidding about the whole thing, but it was too late. WMEN posted a statement on their site to say Sileo had been fired.

“As a result of Dan Sileo’s action on his personal Twitter account on November 3, 2013, WMEN has terminated his independent contractor relationship with the station. The ownership, staff, and management of WMEN 640 Sports do not condone his actions which have no place in sports,” the statement reads.

Sileo tried to apologize in several tweets sent on Sunday and Monday and claimed he had been receiving death threats for his bounty tweet. You can see all those tweets below. You may recall that Sileo, an ex-Miami Hurricanes football player, was fired by WDAE in Tampa last year for calling three black NFL players “three monkeys.” He was also suspended by WQAM earlier this year for his inappropriate tweets sent to Erin Andrews.

Below are his tweets concerning the FSU player. Oh yeah, as the cherry on top of this whole thing, Sileo misidentified the player in the picture and put the bounty on the wrong guy.
