Nothing on the Internet ever goes away. This afternoon the official J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League Twitter account sent out some really offensive tweets about the Bill Cosby rape allegations. It's unclear which one (or more) of the members—Rook, Colione, and Barto—is responsible for the tweets.
Eventually someone had the good sense to delete the tweets, which also include a distasteful comment about Darren Wilson, but they're still on record via screenshots. After deleting the weeks, someone tweeted out the following apology:
We apologize for the distasteful tweets that where recently sent from our account. We are looking into this matter now.— J.U.S.T.I.C.E LEAGUE (@JusticeLeague) November 22, 2014
Here are the tweets from their rant.
This isn't the first time the @JusticeLeague account has made offensive comments about rape. A quick Twitter search reveals today's incident is part of a troubling pattern that also includes derogatory slurs against homosexuals and people with disabilities.
