He made a big to-do about it, saying the media was hard on him and it was a distraction.
"I've kind of just shut it all off," Manziel said, according to ESPN.com. "With how the media has been with me for a while, I just shut everything off. As of [Monday], I said I was done with [Twitter] for however long. It's fun to have, but it can get to be distracting at points."
But he never said anything about Instagram.
This past weekend, Manziel attended the Spurs-Heat NBA game and, in Johnny Football fashion, posted a picture of himself and LeBron to his Instagram account.
Hey, he never said he’d stop posting photos showing how much cooler his life is compared to yours.
In the picture, the two are holding each other close and flashing some sort of signs with their hands. Manziel notes on the photo: “I swear @kingjames is my dude I swear I try and tell 'em #love #mydog”
Who knew LeBron and Manziel were besties?
Yes, Manziel made a big deal about his role in social media, but this is a cool picture that anyone would want to share. Don't hate the kid for wanting to show off a picture anyone would probably want to show off.
