Don’t tell Alabama players to “shut up” about politics, especially on Twitter. Let them express their ill-informed opinion, like you do…

I can’t believe this is happening

Like nearly 81 million others, Damien Harris settled in Monday night to watch the first presidential debate.

And just like untold million fellow citizens, he reacted to the action real time on Twitter.

Only Harris isn’t the average college kid. The Alabama starting running back has nearly26,000 followers. As it turns out, not all of them agreed with the two reactions he posted to the social medium.

“If you’re smart, you’ll stick to football, son,” was one of the replies he received.

Teammates Mekhi Brown, Eddie Jackson and Deionte Thompson were among the other Tide football players reacting to the debate between presidential nominees Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

These guys have every right to do what they want to do on social media.

They did not give up their ability to speak on politics because of their superior athletic skills.


FACT CHECK: Not much of this is actually happening, but it’s is still happening in small numbers.

How embarrassing.
