Former NFL kicker Jay Feely tweeted a picture Saturday night of himself posing with his daughter and her date to prom.

The innocent caption, ” Wishing my beautiful daughter and her date a great time at prom #BadBoys,” is juxtaposed with the fact that Feely is holding a gun pointed at the ground.

Although Feely is pointing the gun toward the ground, the safety is on and his finger is not on the trigger, some observers felt it was a joke that went too far and a debate ensued.

I mean, we get the reference, but this was terribly out of touch with gun safety. And out of touch with not making that picture and night about you.

For the love of… It’s meant to be referential, funny, and all are in on it. PC had gotten waaay outa control. Relax, people- not everything is a controversy. 🙄

An account appearing to belong to Feely’s father chimed in with some context:

Hey, not a big fan of guns, but there are some times you just have to make a point. In this case, all is just in fun. These two kids have been dating for several years and they are fully trusted.

On Sunday morning, Feely posted this follow-up tweet, while keeping up the original post.

Feely, 41, played for seven teams in his 14-year NFL career. He worked as a color commentator for CBS last season, but in a unique position as a “kicking expert” specifically focused on special teams situations.
