Vikings Cornerback Josh Robinson Makes Twitter Account Private Following Controversy

With the Supreme Court ruling that same-sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states, Minnesota Vikings cornerback Josh Robinson took to Twitter to express his disapproval of the decision, saying that pedophilia and incest could soon become legal after this. When Robinson’s comments were met with backlash, he decided to not delete his profile, but rather to keep it and make all the tweets private. However, Robinson’s tweets can still be read via screen shots.

According to Deadspin, Josh Robinson hopped on Twitter to rant about the decision to make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. It was already legal in Minnesota prior to today’s ruling, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Robinson also got into a brief debate with another Twitter user on the issue.

Robinson’s account has since become private, meaning one can no longer view his tweets unless he or she is following him. Before he did so, he tweeted out one final message that people have the “right to believe what they want to believe.”

“You shared yours, I shared mine.”

But the backlash is ongoing on both Twitter and Facebook. Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe noted that he thinks Robinson will regret what he posted.

Others have responded to Josh Robinson’s comments, noting that he’s going to get a lot of negative attention because of what he said.

But there are some who feel Josh Robinson shouldn’t be ridiculed for expressing his opinion.

The Minnesota Vikings have yet to release a statement in regards to Robinson’s comments, and it’s uncertain if Robinson will apologize for what he said.
