Terrell Owens recently blasted Michael Irvin and journalist Jason Whitlock. Irvin and Whitlock made comments about Owens’ decision to skip the Hall of Fame ceremony during an episode of “Speak For Yourself.”
“The worst teammate in the history of professional football is now going to be the worst teammate in the history of the Hall of Fame. This is typical Terrell Owens and I think the voters made a mistake putting him in,” Whitlock said during the segment.
Irving also shared a story about Owens wearing a fake Hall of Fame jacket with his stats on it.
“It’s not about the voters. Don’t give the voters the pleasure of knowing that they meant that much to you that when you finally got in, you’re not even showing up. And the whole while you campaigned about being in. When he did not get in, he and I were shooting a commercial together one time and he came to the commercial with a Hall of Fame gold jacket with all of his records on it. So you went and made a made-up jacket, but you won’t show up to get the real gold jacket? It’s something beyond my capabilities of understanding up here,” Irving said.
Owens responded by posting several tweets blasting Irving and Whitlock…”If you lose a 100 lbs by August 4th then I’ll attend. But you can’t do lipo! I only want 2 donuts. You can have the rest. Bring ur boy Michael Irving too. I got some ‘powdered’ donuts for him. You two Uncle Tommers! Why y’all mad?! I’m not.”
Owens continues to catch heat for his decision to not attend the ceremony. It’s a move that could backfire, but it seems as if he’s prepared for the consequences.
