Henson takes down Twitter account

Associated Press

ASHBURN, Va. -- Now that he's apologized for calling fans "dim wits," Washington Redskins rookie Robert Henson is apparently done with Twitter.

Anyone clicking on Henson's Twitter account Tuesday got a message saying "Sorry, that page doesn't exist!"

On Sunday night, Henson fired off many tweets at fans who booed the Redskins during their 9-7 win over the St. Louis Rams. Henson called the fans "dim wits" and asked how people who "work 9 to 5 at Mcdonalds" could know what's best for the team.

Henson apologized Monday during a brief session with reporters.

A Redskins spokesman said Henson took down the Twitter account on his own and was not ordered to do so by the team.

Henson, a sixth-round draft pick, has yet to play this season.
