Outrage: Atlanta Falcons Mascot Jokes About Suicide: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

 

"Freddie Falcon, Atlanta`s mascot, ruffled feathers with a tongue-in-beak tweet that ran afowl over the weekend.

Following his appearance at the AFSP Suicide Prevention Walk in Atlanta on Sunday, Freddie tweeted, Had a good time at the #ood suicide prevention walk today. I may need to go back if our season continues the way it is."

New York Daily News

How dare this bird-brained freak be so politically-incorrect, makes you want to wring his neck.

I can understand the mascot being depressed after the Falcons lost 34-10 to the Carolina Panthers, but suicide is not a joking matter.

To joke about suicide after participating in a suicide prevention walk is beyond the pale, Freddie Falcon should commit hari-kari. No emails please, I didn`t just participate in a suicide prevention walk.

Foolish bird should stop tweeting!
