Former NFL kicker and current sports analyst Jay Feely is taking some heat after posting the above photo on Twitter. The picture shows Feely posing with his daughter and her prom date. In the photo, Feely is holding a handgun.
The photo went viral shortly after Feely posted it. So far, it has received nearly 40,000 “likes” and thousands of comments. Some people have been offended by the pic, which Feely says was “intended to be a joke.”
“The prom picture I posted was obviously intended to be a joke. My Daughter has dated her boyfriend for over a year and they knew I was joking. I take gun safety seriously (the gun was not loaded and had no clip in) and I did not intend to be insensitive to that important issue,” Feely tweeted on Sunday morning.
