Harrison Slams ESPN’s Schefter Over Tweet Disclosing Giants DE’s Finger

Harrison vs. Schefter

James Harrison has always been one to speak his mind, good or bad, and last night that was on display again as the Steelers fiery linebacker fired a massive shot at ESPN Insider Adam Schefter over a tweet.

What was the tweet that got Harrison so ticked? It was one which disclosed private medical information that showed that Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul had his right finger amputated following an accident over the 4th of July with a fireworks.

Here’s the original tweet from Schefter that started the mess:

And following that – here’s Harrison’s response:

It’s a huge debate on if the reporter should have been allowed to post the info, and there’s no doubt he probably cleared it with his bosses before throwing up what should have been a private matter.

Oddly enough, Pierre-Paul wasn’t the only player that had a fireworks accident over the weekend, as Buccaneers CB C.J. Wilson suffered an arm injury dealing with fireworks.
