Former Chiefs RB Larry Johnson reacts to Kareem Hunt situation
Kansas City Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt is at the center of the NFL world this evening after TMZ released video of him assaulting a woman at a Cleveland hotel earlier this year.
Hunt has since been sent home from the Chiefs’ practice facility, but the aftermath has produced plenty of emotion from people around the globe.
Former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson had one of the strongest responses when he took to Twitter this afternoon to share his thoughts on the matter.
And it’s pretty clear that Johnson is not thrilled with Hunt’s actions.
I thought I made my mistakes painfully clear!!!!
I thought I was a perfect example of what NOT to do!!!!
I thought by speaking aloud about my pitfalls that players after me could see these situations before they’d happen.
REALLY FUCKING UPSET KAREEM……

Johnson had his own run-ins with the law during his NFL career, as he was arrested several times on assault charges against women while being an active player in the league.
He spent six years with the Chiefs before bouncing around to a few other teams prior to exiting the NFL in 2011.
Of course, Johnson isn’t the only one upset by Hunt’s actions, and now it’s a matter of seeing what happens next with the star running back.
The Chiefs obviously did what they had to do in sending him home, but the follow-up will be extremely important for all parties due to the magnitude of the situation.
Hunt has compiled 824 rushing yards for seven touchdowns this season while adding 26 receptions for 378 yards and seven scores.
Andy Reid’s team visits Oakland on Sunday, with the Chiefs looking to grab their 10th win of the season.
But with the unknowns surrounding Hunt moving forward, there are undoubtedly a lot more distractions now present for a team that’s been one of the best in the NFL this season.
