Here’s some words of advice that can apply to anyone: if you’re going to get the day off of work, it’s probably not a good idea to post a photo on social media of you appearing to hold a blunt in some sort of Bob Marley tribute. Someone needs to pass that advice along to Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess.
Bess was excused from practice Thursday and Friday for personal issues, Browns head coach Rob Chudzinski said. He is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game. The Akron Beacon Journal reports that Bess is dealing with a family issue.
Ordinarily nobody would have thought twice about Bess, but that was until he posted a photo on his Instagram account Friday of him appearing to hold a blunt while next to a photo of reggae legend Bob Marley. The caption to the photo was “JahLive,” which is the name of one of Marley’s songs.
Look, we’re not saying Bess was smoking weed, we’re just saying it’s a pretty stupid thing to post a photo like that to Instagram when you have the day off work. It’s just a bad look and indicates a lack of awareness.
Bess must have realized that, because he later deleted his Instagram account. What a bonehead move.
