Yesterday, Steven Taylor celebrated his ten-year anniversary with Newcastle United by giving a, um, special (?) shout-out on Twitter to his black teammates Papiss CisseMassadio Haïdara, Vurnon Anita and Moussa Sissoko with a completely inappropriate accompanying picture featuring four random dudes. Hit the thumbs to check it out. Look, maybe it was an inside joke, but dude should know that you can't go posting stuff like that on a social media site, of all places, and not expect to receive some sort of backlash.

As expected, Taylor posted this message a short while afterwards.

SMH.
