Jameis Winston Tweet From @NBCSportsRadio Was Insensitive And Apology Didn't Go Well Either

ASSOCIATED PRESS

As was widely reported on Thursday afternoon, State Attorney Willie Meggs announced Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not be charged with sexually assaulting a woman who accused him of raping her. Whoever was running the @NBCSportsRadio Twitter account relayed the news that Winston would not be facing charges with a shockingly insensitive tweet. The social media message was soon deleted but it was preserved in retweets and screen grabs.

Nearly 40 minutes later, @NBCSportsRadio tweeted a seemingly rushed apology that included a misspelling and an exclamation point.

Perhaps fittingly, the word "insensitive" was the one misspelled. Compounding the struggles of the account, this tweet was later deleted. It was followed by a pair of more formal apologies.
