Some things Mitch Trubisky just can’t get away from.

An infamous tweet he allegedly sent 10 years ago about kissing certain body parts has again become the talk of some sections of social media.

The story, which the former Bears quarterback has discussed several times over the years, came up again during his appearance on the Pardon My Take podcast. 

Trubisky was in high school in 2011 when one of his buddies took his phone and sent out a racy tweet saying “I love to kiss -------.” 

“I actually gained a lot of fans from that,” Trubisky said jokingly during the podcast. “So, it was, like, positive in a way.”

Trubisky never identified which of his friends sent the tweet, beyond saying he’s now a member of the White Sox organization. Well, we’re sure it’s just a coincidence that Trubisky’s old friend Kade McClure is a pitcher for the Sox’ Triple-A affiliate in Charlotte. 

“We would always take each other’s phones and text girls, do something stupid, tweet something or put it on Facebook,” McClure told the Sun-Times in 2018. “Yeah, that might have been me, I’m not sure.”
