Perhaps Dee Dee McCarron (AKA Dee Dee Bonner) was jealous that it wasn’t her son A.J. giving an emotion-filled post game reaction after leading his team to a touchdown winning drive in the waning seconds of the BCS Title Game last night? Her reaction to Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s speech was not…well it certainly wasn’t very nice and definitely very insensitive.
Mrs. McCarron tweeted to her 20,000 followers last night:
Aj McCarron's mom Dee Dee Bonner says this about Winston and then deletes it… pic.twitter.com/5y7DF1DSYg

Then she deleted the tweet after the immediate backlash and apologized for her remarks. And of course, she wants to let everyone know that she’s not a racist.
Any1 that knows our family knows we r far from racist. My tweet was not in anyway meant that way. I sincerely apologize if it offended any1

Unfortunately for McCarron, she is finding out the hard way, that you can’t just delete a tweet. Once it’s out there in the cyber universe, it’s out there forever. It only takes one person to copy and paste. The reaction to her thoughtless remarks was not kind.

I'll believe Dee Dee McCarron when she says her family isn't racist. However, what she tweeted last night, that WAS totally racist.

So, Dee Dee McCarron…. If your tweet was not "meant that way" why did you delete it? Not fooling anyone.

The actual football game against Auburn and Florida State last night was one for the ages. Somehow, someway, the Seminoles came back and topped the Tigers 34-31. And in the middle of all the madness and lead changes, Winston, a 19-year-old freshman kept his cool and led his team to victory. In fact, Winston led the Seminoles to a perfect 14-0 season. He also took home the Heisman Trophy this year, making him the youngest player to ever do so.
Here’s a look at the quarterback’s post game reaction. He’s certainly fired up and happy, but there doesn’t seem to be a problem with his command of the English language.
