Brandon Marshall just wanted to show his Twitter followers a T-shirt mailed to him by the University of Central Florida, where he played for four seasons before heading to the NFL.
He ended up showing them a lot more.
Marshall tweeted a pic of himself sporting the new UCF shirt from the Chicago Bears' locker room and in the background of that image was a teammate caught with his pants down. After realizing that he'd given his Twitter followers a bit more than a view of his new T-shirt, Marshall deleted the tweet and issued an apology.
With more than 750,000 followers, Marshall's tweet (and that bare Bear bottom ) didn't go unnoticed despite being deleted. Deadspin, Yahoo! and Bleacher Report were among the many websites to take note of the image.

In response to Marshall's social media mea culpa, at least one of his followers felt that the unnamed teammate was really the one who deserved an apology.
