Tyrann Mathieu already has a bad enough reputation, so he needs to be careful when using social media sites like Twitter. If there is one thing athletes should know by now it’s that there is no such thing as a private message. A direct message is only a screenshot away from becoming a tweet for every sports blog in America to see.
Mathieu was reminded of that recently when he had a DM conversation on Twitter with a young lady who uses the handle @alexiskeams. The artist formerly known as the Honey Badger apparently hit her up on Twitter and was wise enough to instantly ask how old she is. When Alexis said she was 17, Mathieu asked her when she’ll be legal. The screenshot has since been deleted but was captured by our friends at Black Sports Online:
Apparently Mathieu has learned nothing from JR Smith, who probably doesn’t care that we all got to see that conversation he had with a girl a few months back. What really could be problematic for Mathieu here is that he is supposedly dating a Hornets cheerleader. The former LSU star was smart to ask the girl how old she was, but I’m not sure his lady friend will see it that way.
