Receiver Jabar Gaffney on Monday downplayed the profane Twitter exchange he had with a Dallas Cowboys fan after the Redskins lost to Dallas, 27-24, in overtime Sunday.

“Cowboys fans, that’s how they are,” Gaffney said. “I was just telling the dude: ‘Y’all won. All right, leave me alone. Don’t talk to me.’” That’s all it was.”


Gaffney after Sunday’s game engaged with a fan on Twitter that uses the handle @bam1121. The user addressed a tweet to Gaffney that read “lmao 3-9”

Gaffney responded: “we 3-7 u dumb [expletive]”

He later tweeted: “3-7 ain’t a record to be proud of I’m just proud I ain’t you get a life or kill urself”

Even later, Gaffney tweeted: “I don’t want the man to really kill himself it was just a way of saying [expletive] off or leave me alone to all you lames keep up or don’t follow”

The tweets have since been deleted from Gaffney’s Twitter page.
