Wife of Washington GM apologizes for crude comment about female reporter

It looks like Robert Griffin III isn’t the only person associated with the Washington football team having with social media.  Now, it is the wife of General Manager Scot McCloughan.  Jessica McCloughan took exception to story by ESPN reporter Dianna Russini, discussing potential disagreements within the Washington organization regarding quarterback Robert Griffin III’s future with the team.

Apparently, Ms. McCloughan took exception to the report and directed a lewd tweet at the reporter, basically asking if Russini had traded oral sex for the story.  If you know how the rest of this goes, say it along with me.  The tweet and the account associated with it were deleted. Then came claims by the team that this was a fake account and someone was impersonating Ms. McCloughan.  However, she eventually fessed up and issued an apology:

“I deeply apologize for the disparaging remarks about an ESPN reporter on my personal Twitter account. The comment was unfounded and inappropriate, and I have the utmost respect for both the reporter and ESPN. I regret that my actions have brought undeserved negative attention to the (Washington football) organization and its leadership. My comments in no way reflect the opinions or attitudes of the organization and I regret that my behavior has in any way negatively impacted the team and its loyal fan base.”

I suspect that Jessica McCloughan will be cooling it on social media for a while.
