HOUSTON, Texas (AP) – Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is firing back at Anheuser-Busch after one of the NFL’s biggest sponsors expressed displeasure at the recent controversy in the league.
Foster took to Twitter on Tuesday night after the beer company issued a statement saying it was “disappointed and increasingly concerned” by recent incidents and was not satisfied with the NFL’s response.
Foster first tweeted: “Lol ok, alcohol company,” with a link to a tweet of the statement. He followed that with a series of tweets that included: “Selling poison on that high horse” and “Domestic violence and alcohol (darn) near synonymous.”
He said Wednesday he believes alcohol is connected “a lot” to domestic violence “in my experience.”
