Arsenal keeper apologises for rape tweet

I'm not going to lie, I just spent what must have been 3 minutes trying to spell Wojciech Szczesny's name before I remembered I could cut and paste.  Science prevails!  Unlike old Woj, who had to apologise for implying that Aaron Ramsey looks like a rapist.

Again somehow forgetting that he is very famous, the goalkeeper commented on a picture of his Arsenal teammate dressed in golfing attire with:
"I don't wanna be rude mate but you look like a rapist on that picture."
The number one rule of football stardom is that you can't ever make a joke that even verges on the edge of incorrectness, and you must at all times promote healthy eating, reading books about sharks and how you don't care about your individual performance as long as the team won.  Also, people who like golf aren't exciting enough to commit sex crimes.  That's why they play golf.

The public were rightly outraged and he has since issued an apology, making everything ok.  And remember kids, there's nothing funny about rape.  Just ask Luke Morgan.  Did he find being raped amusing?  No.  No he did not.  I think.  He wasn't a very good actor to be honest and it was quite a long time ago now so he might have done.
