Tony Carter Apologizes For Aurora Shooting Joke

There are plenty of opportunities between the time an awful joke pops into your head and when you send it, to, well, not send it. Like when you take out your phone, when you open twitter, when you word it all out, when you read it over and then hit send, for instance.

The Denver Broncos' Tony Carter had all those opportunities but decided to ignore them, when he tweeted:

"At a late night movie in Denver y'all pray for me!"

Boo. Just boo.

Are you kidding us with this?? How does anyone — especially those with 6,000+ followers — think this is a funny and okay thing to say when 12 innocent people were killed and 58 others were injured, many of them likely Broncos fans?

He then deleted it and said:

"No Disrespect!!!"

He later deleted that, too.

Tony then settled on this:

"I am truly sorry for the insensitive and inappropriate comment I made last night. It will never happen again."

Barf.

Think before you tweet next time — you know full well you wouldn't have apologized if people hadn't gotten upset. You clearly didn't think it was wrong!
