Dez Bryant simply wasn’t having it on Twitter recently, lashing out at a fan who told him to counsel second-year running back Ezekiel Elliott, who may or may not be in a bit of trouble.
The fan actually ending up deleting the Tweet, but Tyler Conway of Bleacher Report was able to relay what it said, and apparently, it had to do with the fan asking Bryant to give Elliott a hand because “you were here once too, Dez”.
Bryant tweeted back an expletive laced response, basically accusing the fan of trying to tarnish him online.
Elliott’s situation is a bit sticky, and it should be said that it’s a completely different issue than the one that may actually lead to a suspension in 2017. The Dallas running back was reportedly involved in an altercation at a bar on Sunday night, at least according to reports from TMZ Sports.
Elliott was never charged with a crime because police at the scene could apparently never confirm what had happened. The Dallas running back was also not at the bar by the time police got there, according to TMZ.
Cops at the bar spoke to a man who said his nose was just broken — but the man appeared to be extremely intoxicated and couldn’t remember who hit him.
The man’s friend told police, “It was that Dallas Cowboys running back.”
The man who got punched was reportedly involved in a verbal spat with a woman who was in Elliott’s entourage at the time in the club.
TMZ was also able to get this video, though nothing of substance — as it pertains to Elliott — can be found in it:
Bryant also told his Twitter followers to stop jumping to conclusions and instead wait for more details to come out.
He said that Elliott could have been acting in self-defense. Likely to avoid getting caught up in the legalities of everything, though, Bryant ended up deleting that Tweet.
