West Virginia starting quarterback Clint Trickett is sticking his foot in his mouth right about now.

The Tallahassee, Fla. native tweeted about his feelings toward watching football with women, calling it “literally worst than death,” reports Larry Brown Sports. He completed the tweet with the hashtags #TheseHoesAintLoyal and #Stick2Cooking.

Trickett has since deleted his twitter account and made a public apology after the tweet made its rounds on the internet.

According to WVU Sports, Trickett’s apology stated: “I sent out a tweet on July 17 which was misunderstood. I apologize for any confusion that the tweet has caused. I never intended for it to be derogatory or hurtful, but rather a tongue-in-cheek comment, while watching a CFL football game with a female family member. Again, I am sorry that my tweet was misunderstood, and I will use a better choice of words in the future.”

Trickett and the West Virginia Mountaineers start their season on Aug. 30 against Alabama in the Georgia Dome.
