Tyrann Mathieu Went on a Twitter Tirade After New Orleans Saints Player Will Smith Was Murdered

Tragedy struck the NFL this weekend when New Orleans Saints’ defensive end Will Smith was murdered following a fender bender. Cardell Hayes, a 28-year-old former prep star in Louisiana, was charged with second-degree murder after shooting Smith and his wife, Raquel (who was injured and taken to the hospital).

Details on the murder are still surfacing, but Tyrann Mathieu, who is from New Orleans and played for the LSU Tigers, claims he knew Hayes. The two athletes presumably crossed paths during their early football careers.

He went on a Twitter tirade shortly after news broke:

All they have is music to influence them, and if you listen closely to music now a days, it's brainwashing them to believe drugs and killing
