Unbelievable: Ole Miss’ Football Star Laremy Tunsil Gets Hacked, Admits to Smoking Weed, and Taking Payments from Coaches on NFL Draft Night

So, in case you missed it tonight. This is really unbelievable. Just the facts. 2016-04-28-LaremyTunsil-ConfederateFlag

  1. Thirteen minutes before the NFL Draft starts a video was posted to former Ole Miss‘ football star Laremy Tunsil‘s Twitter account. The video shows Tunsil wearing a gas mask and smoking a bong in front of a large Confederate Battle Flag.
  2. Tunsil, who was once considered the top pick in this year’s draft, fell all the way to #13 to the Miami Dolphins. In his interview with Dion Sanders after being picked, Tunsil admitted that it was him in the video and that someone hacked his account.
  3. While all this is going on, somebody is hacking Laremy Tunsil’s Instagram account and is posting what appears to be text messages between Tunsil and Ole Miss Assistant AD of Football Operations John Miller and also Ole Miss staffer Barney Farrar. The texts show Tunsil asking for money to pay his mom’s electric bill and Tunsil’s rent.
  4. Tunsil is then asked in the post-Draft interview with the media if he took money from a coach. His response, “I’d have to say yeah.” Hugh Kellenberger of The Clarion-Ledger and Ben Garrett of Ole Miss Spirit are confirming this one.

I’ve never seen anything like this one and it seems to be far from over. The Local Voice Ligature
