Jets say David Clowney's Twitter account has been hacked

It seems almost a daily occurrence that some sort of Twitter-related controversy plagues professional sports.

Today’s comes out of New York, where the Jets say wide receiver David Clowney’s Twitter attack was hacked. As a result, a litany of profanity-laced tweets emerged — including one that encourages anyone reading to kill themselves.

Oddly enough, the awkward tweets are still live on his page although deleting them is fairly simple.

This is not the first time Twitter has caused Clowney headaches. He was suspended one game by Jets coach Rex Ryan after complaining in 140-character segments about his lack of playing time during Week 2 against New England.
