Richie Incognito finally returned to Twitter Friday afternoon, several hours after the damning Wells report that concluded Incognito and several other Miami Dolphins players engaged in the systematic racial and homophobic bullying of Jonathan Martin and at least one other player and one Dolphins staff member.
He took to Twitter to issue a shot across the bow:
You could not define me in 144 years let alone 144 pages Mr Wells. Thank you for your hard work and dedication.— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) February 15, 2014
He then tweeted positive messages, directing people to the LGBT college resource Campus Pride:
Shane Windmeyer, the founder of Campus Pride, has a history of reaching out to people with checkered pasts, including Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy. Windmeyer told Outsports:
"Campus Pride is obviously distraught any time there is bullying. The Wells report is obviously very disturbing. Our organization feels strongly about siting down with people in hopes of changing behavior. We're happy that Richie Incognito shared our resources, and there is no reason we wouldn't sit down with him and talk about his commitment to LGBT people and what has occurred with his teammate Jonathan Martin."
