I've always hated the crap Holmes pulls on the field -- mostly him flexing after every catch and the related asinine antics.Santonio Holmes invites fan to commit suicide, Twitter style

Earlier today, we pointed out that Steelers receiver Santonio Holmes has been trading jabs with fans via Twitter, in the wake of Monday's news that he has been sued for assault and battery.
We noticed, for example, that Holmes reminded one fan that the fans don't cut Holmes' checks.
We hadn't noticed a far less charitable exchange with another fan. Holmes accuses the fan of trying to make Holmes look like the bad guy, and then says that the fan "shud try finding the worst thing that you could drink n kill urself."
So while Holmes looks to be in the clear from the perspective of the Orlando Police Department, he's still going to have some explaining to do to the folks who actually cut his checks.
This nonsense, popping off on twitter, is completely inexcusable. His agent should tell him to shut up. If he has a lawyer yet for the civil suit, the lawyer should tell him to shut up. And I can't imagine the Rooney family will like this.
Regardless of whether or not the civil suit against him has merit, he needs to knock off this twitter nonsense right now.
