IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas receiver Dez Bryant went on a profanity-filled rant at a reporter in the locker room Thursday, and was further agitated when another reporter tweeted about the exchange.
Bryant’s second tirade interrupted Jason Witten’s weekly session with the media, and the 13th-year tight end worked to calm the situation and help get Bryant out of the locker room, as did coach Jason Garrett.
Bryant was upset about something a reporter had written, and had been asking for days where he was. After the tweet, Bryant called all the reporters in the locker room “dirty” several times before he was led out.
The Cowboys have lost six straight games, and part of Bryant’s outburst was about the media “disrespecting this team.”
