Robert Griffin III Spars With Heckling Fans on Instagram

It was a day just like any other. Robert Griffin III posted a video Monday on Instagram of him singing along to Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean." 


Jamming to MJ on the way to get that work in this morning #BillyJean What you working with this morning?

But that impromptu singalong was not received well by a few commenters.

"This is why you will be cut after next year in Washington," @cperezrn said. "Why you weren't even mentioned as the future. You are a 'QB'. Act like one."

Griffin responded.

"If giving back to the community and training for football at the same time is frowned upon.....then what would you say I do Sir?" he said. "Not give back or Train? Honest Question." And then, "Oh wait...and should I not enjoy a classic song with others who Love MJ? I'm just asking for your wisdom here."

It went on like this for a while, which you can read here

Griffin's social-media presence has been used against him in arguments that he cares more about his personal brand than leading the Redskins to victories, which a self-professed military man pointed out by mentioning the letter sent to season-ticket holders last week that didn't include Griffin's name.

"Military families have class, dignity & loyalty," said Griffin, the product of a military family. "I will maintain mine. You have not shown any of those. I will keep it that way and let you go right off my page God Bless"
