Davone Bess tweets another weed picture; Browns looking into it
Cleveland Browns wide receiver Davone Bess really, really needs to stop using social media to post pictures of his hobbies. And by that I mean he should probably stop tweeting and Instagramming photos that involve weed. On Thursday morning, Bess tweeted and then deleted the photo you see above.
There’s really nothing incriminating there. The green stuff could just as easily be oregano as it could be marijuana. The cigar probably isn’t good for his lungs and stamina, but smoking tobacco isn’t illegal in the NFL. The word “Jah” on the background of Bess’ iPhone is a term used in Rastafarian culture. Bess is a Rastafarian. Let’s not jump to conclusions, people.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns are aware that Bess tweeted the photo and are looking into it.
“The team is aware of the photos and looking further into the situation and will deal with the matter internally,” the team said in a statement.
Last month, Bess posted a photo on Instagram of himself holding what appeared to be a blunt while he was away from the team for personal reasons. A source reportedly told Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that Bess has been dealing with a serious family issue. He grew up in a rough part of Oakland and supposedly worries about family members who still live there.
Aside from the fact that Bess shouldn’t be smoking weed at all, the most mind-boggling part about all this is that he posts these photos on social media. What is he thinking?
