Mendenhall has since deleted the comment, and has stayed off his Twitter account since then — a smart move considering the heat he's taken for his activity earlier in the day.

His final tweet of the day insisted that he "does not have an ignorant bone in his body," and that he only wants to encourage others to "think."
