Johnny Manziel returns to Twitter by quoting Drake lyrics

Johnny Manziel broke a self-imposed Twitter ban by tweeting out some random lyrics to a Drake song early Wednesday morning.

In case you don’t recognize them, those lyrics are from rapper Drake’s 5AM in Toronto song. Manziel tweeted the clean version of the lyrics.

Prior to sending out the Drake lyrics, Manziel had not tweeted since March 25. Apparently an impostor account tweeted some criticism of Ohio State guard Aaron Craft, leading many Buckeyes fans to become angry with Manziel. The next day he told ESPN that he was shutting it all off because it can be a distraction.

Even though Manziel is no longer tweeting — until this morning — he has been using Instagram. Over the weekend, he messed with Aggies fans by throwing up Texas Tech’s “guns up” symbol.

    You failed to mention that the tweets about Aaron Craft (Ohio basketball player) were never sent by Manziel. A person promoting their website created fake tweets and sent them out to Ohio messageboards. Why? To get hits on his site. Didn’t seem to care that he was defaming a kid in order to do so. If you don’t correct the info above, I put you in that same category.

    Read the story again. It’s in there.

    is that kid Johnny Scramble ever sober?

  • Ron Benton

    As a matter of fact, Sheryl, he is. His “sober” moments would include the evening referenced above. He was sober when he went to last night’s TAMU vs Sam Houston baseball game. He was sober afterwards when when he and his girlfriend drove across the railroad tracks to eat at Chimy’s. He was sober when he then strolled the two blocks down to hang out for karaoke night at Northgate, a very calm evening which was otherwise only disrupted by several hours of “can you take a picture with me Johnny?” by men and women alike. And lest you think that’s an A&M thing, those manic requests for signatures and photos happen when he is out of state just as much as they do on campus or in College Station.

    Ok. I guess you must be his sidekick…? Assuming you actually know your assertions are indeed fact, then he’s just an attention whore, not a perennial party boy. Are you a close personal friend of his?

  • Ron Benton

    Yes, I see you made a small change. My issue with your choice of wording still stands. You left in the term “he was squabbling with”, which is patently untrue. Tactics like this used by fellow media make me frustrated with my profession.

    Let me report that incident correctly. I’ll bullet it for you:

    -Manziel did not “squabble” with anyone. The original faked tweets appeared several hours after the game & the frenzy began. As I watched the tweeting sequence develop that Sun. evening, people were tweeting him, either asking him what his beef with Aaron Craft was or asking him why he had “deleted” his tweet in such a cowardly manner. He never responded because he didn’t see them.

    -Manziel was off Twitter that entire weekend. He had a scrimmage on Sat. morning, then drove to his grandparent’s home to catch a rap show. The artist, 2Chainz, appeared in his (Manziel’s) uncle’s concert venue, so he had the opportunity to meet him. This is one way he can meet so many artists…catching them at his family’s venue. He was busy with family things and did not get on social media.

    -Monday morning, when he logged on, he saw the angry tweets from Ohio fans. He asked the twitterverse if someone could tell him what was going on. Someone replied (about the fakes) and he thanked them. He then tweeted 2 more times, saying how much he admired Craft and that he would never say such things about him. That was his last tweet until the lyrics discussed above. Those 3 tweets are the ones you have characterized as “squabbling”.

    Now, Mr. Brown. I’d like to know how you feel okay about using terms that would once again and unfairly put this young man into a negative light when simply clarifying things truthfully would be just as simple. In other words, what’s your problem with just deleting the inflammatory words and focusing on this story, such as it is?

    Thanks for the info. Just checked that out. Story updated again.

  • Ron Benton

    Good work.

  • Ron Benton

    No, not a sidekick. Just media who doesn’t use Busted Coverage as our primary source of information. Example: while that branch of “media” spent last Saturday scouring the Texas Chili-Fest just west of Texas A&M for sightings of Manziel and Marshall Henderson supposedly “bro-ing it out/drinking”, etc., we kept tabs on him and George Whitfield in Dallas as they participated in mentoring youngsters at the Elite 11 QB camp. He spent the following Sunday morning watching HS basketball at the Great Texas Shootout (with, gasp, courtside seats…must have cost him a good ten bucks). You will see Twitter mentions along the lines of “Marshall H. & J. Manziel, drunk here at ChiliFest”, if you bothered to check. Don’t bother. Like much of what you’d see, it simply isn’t true.

    Another example: a Houston TV sports team tweeted that he was sitting courtside with P-Diddy at the NBA Challenge game. That was confusing to us, since we knew he was 350 miles away at that moment, attending the first day of the Davey O’Brien awards. The kid’s talented, but can’t be in two places at once. When asked, the Houston reporter did not tweet a correction. Gossip media rarely do.

    I’ve only met the young man once, at the ESPN magazine Superbowl party on a Friday night. Although it would have been legal for him to drink there (he was with his dad), he was not doing so. Sober as a nun and a polite, laid back kind of kid.

    Wow. Are YOU his sidekick, that you would make such a comment?

  • D cr

    I would say that Johnny Football’s primary character failing is his seeming devotion to lame Drake lyrics. But maybe that’s just my inner old man “you kids get off my lawn” persona emerging.

  • SherylSimpson

    of course he makes all the fine, upstanding, sober engagements that his handlers set up for him to attend. that doesn’t make him any less of an attention mongering, celebrity schmoozing, partying Twitter tot when he’s left to his own devices. if i were A&M, i’d like to see more maturity, less entitlement and better judgement in my supposed team leader.
