Michael Beasley’s Twitter Gaffe

B-Easy showed off a ghastly new tat to his followers, but may have forgotten to put away his special stash before taking the picture: “For the second time in less than a month, Heat forward Michael Beasley is out of the Twitter business, this time, perhaps, for good. Beasley’s latest Twitter account, GorillaBeas, disappeared sometime overnight Saturday.That was shortly after he self-posted a photo (seen below) of a new ‘SuperCoolBeas’ tattoo on his back, which also happened to be the name of his first Twitter account. Problem is, some have taken their inspection of the photo to a curious level. Yes, there appear to be two baggies in the background…The team has been in contact with Beasley since.”

    supercoolbeas? come on. that’s just terrible.

  • frank

    and those bags do look like weed.

  • breatheifurhorny

    didnt he darrel arthur and mario chalmers get busted last year at the rookie camp for this?

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    I’m not sure what’s worse? The tattoo, the weed or the GorillaBeas Twitter name. And just for the sake of the discussion, on the deleted Twitter account he had, he posted something to the effect of “tired of being criticized, don’t feel like livin’ anymore” or something like that. Hopefully the kid isn’t losing his mind to the pressures of fame.

    The next Lamar Odom.

  • davidR

    i dunno about angel wings on a dude. but really, i hope he’s doing okay.

  • TDP

    The “baggies” look more like a Little Debbie wrapper to me.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    some people are just a bit.. special. apparently nobody told him that grown ass men don’t sport cornrows anymore.

  • Fat Lever

    Was it really that difficult to just put the bags in a drawer? It’s not like he was asked to solve a math problem or something. If you’re that stupid to leave that ish out, then you deserve to be clowned.

    Kid needs a mentor. A tough love dude whom he respects. Some kids are just not ready.

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Eboy

    Cheryl, just in case you haven’t heard, Zo has been assigned to him as mentor once the season starts as part of his new job duties with the front office. If any of Zo’s ways catches on, Beas should be a new man come next April, for the better and more mature.

  • JoeMaMa

    Give the kid a break. It’s weed in the offseason.

  • ciroqobama

    Worst tat ever

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com Cheryl

    Let’s hope it works, E. Brad mentioned that he reminds him of Lamar Odom. If his situation is somilar, maybe a change of scenery will make Beas grow up like it did with Lamar. Trade him to the Clips for Kaman and a first rounder.

  • truce

    Beasley was in the room with Chalmers and Arthur he just left before they got caught.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Chris O’Leary

    Supercool Beas? It looks like something you’d see in Jackass.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Chris O’Leary

    Just noticed the pair of glasses that seem to be hanging off of the S in the tatt. Reminds me of the Saved by the Bell opening credits.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    oh wow i had not seen the glasses. this guy is a lunatic.

  • larrylegend

    and they said, weed is for inspiration of the mind of man…uh

  • LeoneL

    I’d criticize him more for the tats than the weed. Just sayin’…

  • dave

    it seems that me and “super cool beas” both love 7 UP! WONDERFUL!!

  • T Money

    I give up on this kid.

  • Matt

    Lol two dumbass moves in one twitter posting, the tat and not hiding his weed

  • underdog

    Well, IMHO this tat is almost as bad a DeShawn’s ‘STEVENSON’ tat. Weak.

  • http://slamonline.com 360vue

    i initially thought his bloody horrid tattoo’s had been busted. pfft to that bag of herb, its his offseason and hes still young, just as long as hes doin extra fitness work as that stuff zaps your stamina. in reality, wheres the difference between that and booze? ones alot more socially acceptable, and that very one is far more poisonous than the one that isnt. so haters should leave off cos no1 would cuss him for having a drink

  • http://www.shawn-kemps-offspring.blogspot.com/ TADOne

    If I had a tatoo that looked that bad i’d smoke some weed as well.

  • riggs

    weed should be legalize, and this is coming from someone who has never smoked ANYTHING. on the other hand dumb*ss tats should be banned or law breakers subject to caning.

  • http://www.manutd.com Z

    it’s pretty shallow considering that this is, best, trivial.. but i have completely given up on greatness for beasley.

  • riggs


  • itai

    and lets get real…that 7UP next to the buddha is not classy.
    its the poor mans sprite man

  • http://www.sonicbids.com doyouwantmore

    Supercoolbeas? AND he didn’t think to put away his stash? Awesome news. Another dumbass NBA player who has lost my respect. I don’t care what stupid tattoos these guys get and weed isn’t a performance-enhancing drug so who cares about that, but being dumb enough to put a picture of both on the internet? LOL

  • Tay

    Could you imagine if they had twitter during the crazy 70s or the coked out 80s. Those guys would have stayed in trouble

  • Tyquan

    Where’s da dutch and Arizona green tea? But seriously though he’s gotta know that he is kinda famous and anything that he does is literally getting probed under a microscope. But I will also add that he is what 21 so like all kids in their early 20′s he still has room to grow even if he is a so called NBA superstar on the rise. Hey I’m 27 and I still have a lot to learn my damn self let’s see what happens when he goes to rehab or whatever’s clever.

  • packito

    Give the kid a break he’s young give him time, if he turns out to be like odom then he get the Heat a championship.

  • Chris

    Everyone’s jumping to conclusions on what’s in the bag. I for one keep my oregano in zip lock bags. Maybe Beas took this picture on his way to seasoning his homemade pasta sauce.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Myles Brown

    The guy who watches nothing but cartoons all day gets high? GASP!

  • jman

    No one mentioned the black and milds above the 7-Up? Or maybe they’re some other type of cigars. But that’s definitely a cigar box. I wasn’t sure about the baggies but once I saw the cigars, I knew. No big deal to me though, he’s gotta now people are going to criticize.

  • jman


  • Ryan

    who cares if it is weed everybody smokes it! leave the man alone if he wants to get high. but its apparent he shouldn’t pick out his tattoos high cause they turn out like that.

  • Shadow

    loll weed isn’t even bad, i don’t care what you learned in dare class, check the facts.. give the kid a break

  • http://www.realcavsfans.com Anton

    Wow what a moron! Everyone knows Sprite offers more lemon-lime flavor than 7-Up at a competitive price!!


    Since I follow the kid and, know a little more than the average fan. The glasses are from Sponge Bob. The weed is no big deal, he’s still going to be a great player and person when he matures and develops. It’s funny though…. I wonder at 20 where were you and what were you doing. Just because the kid is rich and famous his every move will be scrutinized to a point of no return. Most of you MATURE RESPONSIBLE adults would loose your f_ing mind if you hit the lottery for millions of dollars right now. Its called human nature idiots.

  • Thunder Dan

    I’m surprised there’s any weed left. I would think you need to be crazy high to get that bad of a tattoo.

  • http://ballislife.com Moose


  • Brian

    Give the kid a break, it’s hard to make good decisions when you’re high.

  • Big D

    this pick is starting to look worse for the Heat. The Heat management should have listened to DWade and taken OJ Mayo. The two worked out together before the draft and DWade was sold on OJ Mayo. “SuperbadTat” is on the same road that got him kicked out of Oak Hill.

  • stu

    kid obviously reads things online, hence his feeling like everyone is hating on him.. let’s not be too harsh, i fckn hated reading SLAM’s posthumous article on eddie griffin.. let’s not contribute to another one.

  • john

    i see why he be looking sleepy.lol

  • Rusty

    I dont care if the cat smokes, but that tat is crazy bad.

  • http://replicajewelry-replicajewelry.blogspot.com/ eronne

    what if Michael did smoke marijuana, lots of people do, especially NBA players, I don’t think it is a big deal anyway neither did Beasley has any serious substance abuse problems. If he is not a NBAer in a famous team, maybe nobody would care about this.

  • packito

    Bro you guys are haters let the kid be, he’s young and growing up. Every one wants to find something wroung with some one to blow it up. He smokes (oh no its the end of the world) well guess what its not and he will play next year and he still will put up numbers. You guys have must had for gotten he ranked in the top 5 of all rookies and to me had a bad season. He’s going to be good he’s going to grow up and he’s going to win a ring. You guys even hate oh he’s tats dam you guys are sad!!!! And when you compare players that miami could had picked in the draft instead of beasley don’t compare him to some one that’s gotten into as much or more trouble as beasley. (O.J. Mayo)

  • flash

    lamar odom? more like the next rasheed wallace to me.. is this really the guy they want to be helping dwade? cmon!

  • Pablo Escobar

    How has no one noticed that one baggy is weed, but the second baggy is coke? Last I checked baggies full of white ain’t weed, and we all know Miami’s got plenty of the white.

  • packito

    With that last name you might have been the person to give him the “drugs” lmao

  • packito

    With that name you might have been the person to give him the “drugs” lmao maybe we should all jump on your back and make you the bad person of this whole thing. Lmfao

  • High School Hoops Junkie

    Hey Pablo, that is not a white substance, those are the ends of the bag twisted and tied up… Nothing like starting a new rumor…

    O.k. o.k. First of all everybody is automatically thinking the worst of this young black kid. Isnt that the ploy of the media. Guys come on be smarter than that. secondly were the pics taken at his house or in a place where he is supposed to be liable for the drugs? So if he is in a pic and somebody drops a couple of bags on the table just before they snap the shot he is supposed to take the blame for the drugs? Wow! We wonder why we lose respect for the political system and the government so much. People have been brainwashed so much. We are throwing our own Liberties away and crucifying each other. I really dont understand how you can judge this young man’s mindstate or his sanity. Just because you have emotions does’nt mean that they won’t subside. Alot of you probably use to or still smoke “weed”, cigarettes, over eat ,drink, do cocaine, or just plain addicted to yourself. Meaning self absorbed! How many of you good people have been a young black man in America? Ok. Now how many of you grew up in one of the many ghettos or “Hoods” in America? I know by now alot of you readers are saying here we go with the black, white thing again. But that’s exactly what I meant! Brainwashed. If we are supposed to heal from this silent racism why is it we still can’t speak openly about it? Cause its concealed deeply within the roots of America. Dont get me wrong. I love The United States of America. Its where I was born and raised. But to still see the judgement and the hyprocrits. In Your Defense! Some of you are right sometimes its not black or white issue cause some black people that where raised in upper class neighborhoods judge kids from lower class neighborhoods everyday.Being a former educator I have witnessed it with my own eyes. It hurts. When the subject of enequality because race comes up, All of a sudden here comes the “Black people had slaves too!” comments. I respond wth “Yeah, but somebody had to teach them how to do it” Just like we were taught to have slaves we were taught to be critical of one another. Sadly to say it’s evident that some of the tricks worked.
    In closing I offer these words to all you judges with Official Hater Degrees. He that is without sin, cast the first stone! Keep Your Head up Michael Beasley! Jesus cares about you and will see you through it! Even though I don’t know you, I am Praying for you like you were my own brother. Peace!
