Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray is apologizing for anti-gay tweets posted to his Twitter account several years ago, after USA Today inexplicably brought the tweets to the public’s attention, following what must have been an exhaustive search to find something… ANYTHING with which to destroy him.

The Oklahoma quarterback tweeted: “I apologize for the tweets that have come to light tonight from when I was 14 and 15. I used a poor choice of word that doesn’t reflect who I am or what I believe. I did not intend to single out any individual or group.”

The tweets have since been deleted from the account of Murray, 21, who won college football’s most prestigious individual award Saturday night over Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa and Ohio State’s Dwayne Haskins.

Murray, a junior from the Dallas suburbs, has signed a $4.66 million contract with the Oakland Athletics after he was selected in the first round of the Major League Baseball draft in June and this season may be his last in college football, according to NBC News.

WIBC host Tony Katz:

“You mean we’re going back to tweets this guy sent when he was 15, and we’re going to use that to destroy him after he won the highest honor in college football?

This is emblematic of society today: We want to destroy people no matter what. We don’t care about your age or how long ago it was; we will do everything in our power to destroy you. That’s what’s happened. So when I tell you to keep your kids off social media, I’m telling you that to save your children.”
