Jay Feely apologizes for posing with gun in daughter’s prom photo

Jay Feely

Former NFL kicker Jay Feely made a joke over the weekend about his daughter going to the prom, and he was forced to apologize on Sunday after it did not go over well with many people.

The photo featured Feely posing with his daughter and her prom date. The caption seemed innocent enough, but Feely was proudly displaying a handgun in his right hand.

While Feely was obviously trying to make a clever dad joke, many felt the photo was inappropriate and promoted gun violence. On Sunday, he issued an apology and said both his daughter and her longtime boyfriend knew he was joking. Feely also said he takes gun safety seriously.

Feely, who has made headlines in the past for his outspoken personality, probably didn’t expect the reaction he got. And in fairness, there were plenty of people who found the joke hilarious. Still, you can understand why it stirred up some negative emotions.
