Multiple old offensive and racist tweets from Wyoming QB Josh Allen surfaced on Wednesday night, just hours ahead of the NFL draft. The former Wyoming quarterback acknowledged the tweets late Wednesday night and apologized, saying he was young and dumb.
The tweets no longer appear on Allen’s account. However, they contained racial slurs and other offensive language, according to reporting by Yahoo! Sports.
Some of the language used below may be offensive.
Allen has tweeted the “n” word multiple times.

He also responded to a question that looks like was asked of him on AskFM in 2013, saying “If it ain’t white, it ain’t right!”
Why are you so white ? — If it ain’t white, it ain’t right! http://t.co/wsLQKZQWG5

While this one isn’t necessarily offensive, Allen also shared his public dislike for NBA star LeBron James in 2011.
I hate LeBron!!!!! #LeBronSucks

The tweets cited by Yahoo! Sports were sent in 2012 and 2013, when Allen was in high school. This is interesting timing for them to be released. Might cost him millions in the long run.
