Baltimore Woman Responsible for Offensive Torrey Smith Tweet Apologizes

You think you know how offensive Twitter can get, and then you see the now infamous pair of micro-missives from Baltimore-residing Patriots fan Katie Moody sent after Raven Torrey Smith helped his team deliver a narrow victory over New England on Sunday, hours after learning of his brother’s death in a motorcycle accident.

After firing off the first unconscionable tweet, “Hey, Smith, how about you call your bro and tell him all about your wi—ohhhh. Wait. #TooSoon?” Moody followed it with the equally perverse message, “The pats may have lost but at least none of them lost a family member. I’d say that’s a win.”

Well several days — and hundreds of death threats — later, Moody has issued the following apology:

“I profoundly regret my thoughtless, tasteless, and completely inappropriate comment, and I deeply lament the pain that it has caused. I would like to apologize to Torrey Smith, his family, friends, and everyone who was distressed by what I said. I should have been offering sympathy and compassion for such a terrible and heart-breaking loss. I set high standards for myself as a person and as a fan, and I fell short of these standards. This was a horrible lapse in judgment that I will always regret. I am truly sorry.”

Now hopefully the death threats, as well as Moody’s sports commentary, will cease.
