Stefon Diggs caught a touchdown pass Sunday against the Redskins, but was penalized for his over-exuberant celebration after jumping onto the goal post, something not allowed by the NFL’s celebration guidelines.
Something even more egregious came over the game, when fans accused the Vikings WR of mocking the tragic events of 9/11 with his celebration.
WARNING: Do not show this to your kids!
This has gone way too far, @NFL. I thought you couldn’t go any lower, but today a player reenacted the 9/11 #terrorattacks on the #WTC as a #touchdown celebration. I vomited when I saw this. Absolute filthy #scum.#BoycottNFL#NeverForget pic.twitter.com/oRllIgwCll

Uh, THE ARMS. They are made to look like a plane. There are two towers (the goal posts). He runs directly into them. Tell me I’m wrong.
