A.J.’s mom, Dee Dee McCarron, is apologizing for dissing Florida State quarterback Jameis Winton’s post-game victory speech in a controversial tweet that read, ‘Am I listening to English?’ Dee Dee took to Twitter to insist that she did not ‘in any way’ mean to be ‘racist.’
The mother of Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron quickly deleted her questionable tweet on Jan. 6, after facing a major backlash from the Twitterverse. To her credit, the football mom tweeted a heartfelt apology the next day to anyone she may have offended with her careless question.

After Jameis’ fans accused both A.J.’s mom and his girlfriend, Katherine Webb, who favorited the tweet, of being racist, both women were quick to dismiss the allegations on Twitter.

And Katherine tweeted:
The idea that I am a racist is absolutely stupid and it needs to stop. I was scrolling through my TL and that tweet was accidentally FAV.

Hopefully Jameis’ supporters will forgive Dee Dee and Katherine because their tweets seem sincere.
A.J. McCarron Loses The Sugar Bowl
A.J. hasn’t had much luck lately — the quarterback lost the 80th Annual Allstate Sugar Bowl Classic on Jan. 2, and his girlfriend Katherine appeared shocked and saddened as she watched the game from the sidelines.
The former Miss Alabama and A.J.’s family were crushed when the best football team in the country suffered a shocking loss to Oklahoma.
The final score of the highly anticipated game was 45-31 and the Crimson Tide was also incredibly upset over the season ending this way — especially since it was A.J.’s final game.
So HollywoodLifers, do you think Dee Dee’s apology is sincere? Do you think Jameis’ fans should forgive her? Let us know.
