After getting cut by the Miami Dolphins following spending a night in jail on suspicion of headbutting his wife, Chad Johnson decided to get his football fix elsewhere.
But when he tried to play Madden ’13, he had a rude awakening.
He couldn’t find his avatar.
Tweeted Johnson: “That awkward moment when you realize you’re not on Madden13 and you have to create yourself.”
Johnson tweeted that message Wednesday to his 3,733,709 followers. Since Johnson is no longer on a roster, his avatar was moved to the free agent pool.
That realization apparently led to some introspection. Through Twitter, Johnson then lamented his actions that led to his Aug. 11 arrest.
He responded to a fan who asked “why did you delete your bio?” by saying, “I got to start life over and create a new one.”
Then he told a fan who tried to offer him sympathy that none was necessary.
“I actually feel bad for @ochocinco Idk why tho,” tweeted @MissShaiMUA.
Replied Johnson: “I made the bed now I gotta lay n it.”
