A controversial message was posted on Steelers’ Ryan Shazier’s Instagram and Twitter accounts Friday night. It was deleted 40 minutes later, but Pittsburgh news station WPXI has it.
A photo saying, “Would you smack your ex for a million dollars?”
Shazier’s added a comment, saying, “Lol. I thought this was funny.”
WPXI's Bill Phillips called the Steelers but didn’t hear back.
Shazier later posted an apology, saying, “Previous post does not reflect the serious issue re: domestic violence. I need to use the platform. I have to help end d-v. #nomore.”
Steelers owner Art Rooney is involved with the investigation into how the NFL handled the alleged Ray Rice domestic violence.
The Steelers play the Baltimore Ravens in Pittsburgh Sunday night.
