Ticats linebacker Simoni Lawrence took to Twitter Monday morning to apologize for comments he made following Hamilton’s 12-6 loss to the Ottawa Redblacks.

Lawrence, responding to criticism from Henry Burris over a first quarter hit on the Redblacks quarterback, said Burris was acting “like a girl” and “ho.”

Lawrence also responded directly to father of a female football player in Ottawa.

Lawrence also clarified that while he wasn’t trying to hurt Burris, a former teammate, he wasn’t apologizing for the hit that angered the 40-year-old quarterback.


The hit continues to fuel debate on social media, with strong opinions on both sides. Lawrence was not flagged on the play.
