After spending one season as a member of the New England Patriots, Chad Ochocinco was released from his contract with the team earlier this afternoon. Unsurprisingly, the controversial wideout and fiancé of Basketball Wives star Evelyn Lozada took to Twitter to tell the Beantown fans that they were “f***ing wicked awesome,” while at the same time changing his Twitter bio so that it reads “UNEMPLOYED BLACK GUY.”
Evelyn, being the precocious person that she is, also mentioned the news on Twitter:
Wait, was she just throwing shade at the man who will soon become her husband?
Of course not! Everyone who has ever seen Evelyn and Ocho interact knows that they have the kind of relationship where teasing equates to flirting. Evelyn quickly followed up this tweet, which some fans read as being controversial, with two more tweets directed at the haters:
Now that’s love, baby!
One last thing: While Chad is currently without a team, there does not seem to be any consensus at this point in time about whether he’ll not he’ll land on another squad in time for what would be his twelfth season in the National Football League. The widely loathed ESPN personality Skip Bayless tweeted that “@ochocinco might be closer to becoming a highly successful full-time media member than making another team next season,” but NFL.com analyst Gregg Rosenthal tweeted that “Don’t think @ochocinco will struggle to get work. Not a Terrell Owens situation.” Either way, what this likely means is that Ocho will probably get to skip the first few days of NFL training camp while he enjoys his honeymoon. If you ask us, that’s a win/win situation.
