Not Available Lead

Cardinals defensive end Darnell Dockett is a guy who's not afraid to post anything—and we do mean anything—on social media. Remember the time he made an Asian joke on Twitter and then refused to apologize for it? People were very upset about it, but he didn't seem to care. And if you Google "Darnell Dockett" and "Twitter," you'll find countless other examples of him saying and doing crazy things on social media (like this, this, and this) without a care in the world. There's a reason why we used his photo to jumpstart this list of the 50 biggest social media fails in sports history.

But earlier this afternoon, he took things to another level when he reposted a questionable photo of Malia Obama—President Obama's 16-year-old daughter—on Instagram. The photo has actually been making the rounds on social media for the last 24 hours or so. But Instagram user @dreday_4 posted it early Monday along with the caption, "When is her prom?":


And Dockett responded by leaving "Omgggg" as a comment on his post. Then, Dockett reposted the photo along with "Lmfaooo" as his caption:


In fairness to Dockett, he's not the only one who has reposted the photo today. Far from it actually. But because Malia is only 16 and because @dreday_4's caption wasn't actually funny, Dockett should have passed on reposting it. You probably shouldn't expect him to apologize or take it down anytime soon, though.
