Someone claiming to be Isaiah Crowell started a Twitter account on Tuesday, asking everyone and anyone for followers, engaging in conversation with other UGA football players, and making profanity-laced comments in the tweets.
The “real” Isaiah Crowell confirmed with the AJC on Tuesday that he has never been on Twitter and he shut down his Facebook account earlier today.
“No sir, I’ve never been on Twitter; I had a Facebook account but I erased it because it was creating so many problems” Crowell told the AJC. “It’s deleted.”
The coach of the 5-star tailback from Carver-Columbus High School was disappointed about the “fake” Twitter account in Crowell’s name. Crowell signed with Georgia over Alabama and Auburn last February.
“That’s crazy,” Dell McGee said. “I just read some of the comments on there and they are stupid. That’s not Isaiah and I hope you get the word out there that it’s not him.”
