After being suspended for the remainder of the 2014 NFL season for using a switch to dicipline his 4 year old-child, Adrian Peterson admitted that his actions were extreme and was "deeply sorry" for the incident. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he may be reinstated in the league if he shows remorse for his actions.

This tweet is not the way to show it.

Assuming his account was not hacked, Peterson awkwardly compared his child abuse charges in Texas to what was happening in Ferguson, Missouri.

Adrian, for the love of God, please put down your smart phone.
