Smack talk is an important part of sports. It amps up rivalries and adds a bit of motivation to compete. In modern times, though, insults lobbed on Twitter can, ahem, explode into a mushroom cloud of bad judgment. Case in point: Buffalo Bills’ WR Stevie Johnson.

You might remember Johnson as the guy who, two years ago, mimicked Plaxico Burress shooting himself in the leg after catching a touchdown. Yesterday, Johnson provoked the New England Patriots, their fans, AND (wait for it) North frikkin’ Korea, risking an international incident with this tweet:

Look, Stevie, we understand the desire to fire yourself up for your division rival. They’ve beaten your ass the past 12 times. Maybe you could leave nuclear warfare out of it, though? You’re a professional athlete, so wishing supreme death on a fan base is a direct violation of Guy Code. Keep the trash talk trashy, not murderous.
