Ex-Chiefs star blasts Kareem Hunt over incident
One former Kansas City Chiefs player is FURIOUS with Kareem Hunt over the running back’s February assault of a woman.
Larry Johnson, who played for the Chiefs from 2003-2009 and made two Pro Bowls, ripped into Hunt via Twitter after video emerged Friday of Hunt’s assault.
“I thought I made my mistakes painfully clear!!!!
“I thought I was a perfect example of what NOT to do!!!!
“I thought by speaking aloud about my pitfalls that players after me could see these situations before they’d happen.
“REALLY F—ING UPSET KAREEM……” Johnson tweeted.
After being an absolute star in 2005 and 2006 for Kansas City, Johnson washed out of the league quickly and was hardly effective beyond 2008. He was arrested multiple times during his career, including five arrests for violence against women. In 2012, he was arrested for strangling his girlfriend until she passed out.
About 10 years after Johnson’s Chiefs career has ended, the team has a new young star running back also getting into trouble for being physical with a woman — and supposedly a man. The parallels are obvious, and it’s upsetting for Johnson to see someone not learn from his awful mistakes.
Hunt was sent home by the Chiefs after they learned that video was released. The second-year back may end up on the commissioner’s exempt list.
