Lamar Jackson is dealing with a lot today. 

The Baltimore Ravens star is calling out ESPN over a recent report on his vulgar tirade directed at a Twitter troll. After the Ravens’ loss to the Jaguars on Sunday, Jackson responded to a heckling fan on Twitter by telling him to “eat d***’ for criticizing his play.

ESPN writer Jamison Hensley described Jackson’s tweet as “anti-gay” when he wrote about the back-and-forth between the Ravens star and the fan.

Via ESPN: 

Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson responded to a social media post Sunday that criticized his performance with a profanity-laced tweet that included an anti-gay phrase.

ESPN would later use “anti-gay” to reference Jackson’s tweet on ‘First Take.’

Jackson fired back at Hensley and ESPN by claiming they are ‘defaming’ his character for characterizing the tweet as “anti-gay.”

Social media is a lot of fun, right?
