Cowboys: We Didn’t Force Cheerleader To Delete Her Twitter Account

By Kent Chapline, CBSDFW.COM

IRVING (CBSDFW.COM) – Somebody might have pushed Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Melissa Kellerman off Twitter, but it wasn’t the Dallas Cowboys.

We know this because we asked the Cowboys.  They said it wasn’t them.

Kellerman, as you might have heard, is the cheerleader who had a sideline collision with tight end Jason Witten during the game on Thanksgiving.

Kellerman wasn’t hurt, and the next day she posted two good-natured tweets about it:

  • “Not hurtin’ today, like some of y’all thought I would be! Our TE isn’t as tough as he looks… That or I’m WAY tougher than I look. ;)”
  • “I’m not the best at Jason Witten trust falls ;)”

Sometime soon after that, her Twitter account disappeared.

That night, CNBC sports reporter Darren Rovell claimed the Cowboys forced Kellerman to delete her Twitter account.  His claim has been repeated all over the internet, and many people are criticizing the Cowboys for the supposed move.

This morning we asked the Cowboys if they had made Kellerman delete her account.

Here’s the reply we got from Rich Dalrymple, the team’s Vice President of Public Relations & Communications:  “The Dallas Cowboys Football Club did not.  We don’t get involved in administering twitter accounts.”

Monday morning (in fact, while this story was being written), Kellerman’s account reappeared.  But now she is protecting her tweets.

We’re trying to contact Kellerman.

    Well, there you go. The Cowboys said they didn’t do it, so that has to be true.

    1. KatTM says:

      And it has to be true that they did because a reporter stated his opinion based on nothing but his own belief?

    So ask Darren Rovell from CNBC if he made up the story. He is always saying coaches should be fired, so I’m sure he will quit if he’s the liar.

    You know this ‘because we asked the Cowboys.’ My God, everything really IS bigger in Texas–and apparently this includes stupidity.

    It doesn’t matter WHY she deleted her Twitter account or WHY she brought it back online. All of these conspiracy theorists need to move on.
