GREEN BAY, Wis. — San Francisco 49ers right tackle Anthony Davis tweeted disparaging words about Appleton, Wis. on Saturday night on the eve of his team’s NFC wild-card game against the Green Bay Packers.
Davis tweeted that former pro wrestler Ric Flair was addressing the 49ers in a meeting Saturday night at their team hotel in Appleton.
“Nature Boy Ric Flair flew into this s—hole to show us some love,” Davis tweeted.
After receiving unhappy responses to his initial tweet about Appleton, Davis took to Twitter once again to disparage the town.
“Ok everybody that strongly disagrees w me can you defend your argument on this place not being a s—hole? lol btw that is not Rhetorical,” Davis tweeted.
Teams visiting the Packers routinely stay in Appleton, which is about 30 miles from Green Bay.
