Packers, celebs use Twitter as ref soapbox
Monday night there were over 1 million mentions of the situation.
T.J. Lang's controversial, obscenity-laden tweets, which you can easily find using a Google search, were retweeted more 130,000 times between his three tweets. Given his relatively low number of followers -- he has just over 100,00 -- that's an astronomical number.
There were numerous other profane tweets from Green Bay Packers, perhaps best summed up by Greg Jennings.
And many more celebrities and sports stars piped in:
