Kenyon Martin Wants Everyone Who Hates Him To Get AIDS

Kenyon Martin Wants Everyone Who Hates Him To Get AIDS


Sports is a tough, competitive discipline, especially on the professional level. So we can forgive a little trash talk. On the other hand, it is also possible to take trash talk too far, and like many athletes, Kenyon Martin's learning that being a loudmouth and on Twitter don't mix.

Yep, the guy who made fun of Alonzo Mourning's potentially deadly kidney problems and tried to call out a fan from the bench is at it again, this time inviting everyone who hates him on Twitter to "catch full blown AIDS and die." At the root of the argument is Martin's $3 million, one-year contract with a Chinese basketball team. And, of course, the NBA lockout.

Martin, of course, probably doesn't have to worry about playing any regular season NBA games, what with the players and the owners currently racing to see who can shut down the 2011-2012 season the longest. But, needless to say, some Twitterer implied that due to Martin's knee problems, he'd be going to China anyway (hey, it beats going back to the Nets). Hence the AIDS comments.

But at least somebody in the Martin camp has an awareness of the term "PR nightmare"; Kenyon's Twitter has been taken down. Maybe in the future he'll be a little more careful. Or at least maybe a little less touchy.
