NY Post Sports — Grayson Murray’s open book policy on social media took a decidedly creepy turn Wednesday night.
The 23-year-old golfer and part-time model chaser, after admitting he “had a couple drinks,” fired off an inappropriate tweet to a young female fan after she posed the age-old question, “Why does everyone hate on @GraysonMurray?”
“Idk but I hate the fact you are in high school. You are pretty,” Murray replied in the since-deleted tweet, which had been captured.
The fan in question, a Dallas-based high schooler who had recently shared photos from her prom, responded to Murray’s remarks with, “Well thanks!”
Murray returned to Twitter on Thursday morning, switching the subject matter from personal to professional.
I cringed out loud when I saw this it’s so skeevy.
But I also laughed out loud. It’s quite a ballsy move and it’s kind of funny that he tweeted this as a quote tweet and not a reply where it’s at least a little more private.
At least Murray did answer this girl’s question of why everyone hates on him. Certainly clears that up.
Here’s the first tweet he sent after he deleted the tweet in question:
Way to subtly pivot to tweeting like a professional person and expect us to forget you just hit on a high-schooler. While this technique is frequently used, it is rarely effective. Screenshots are forever, as they say, so Murray’s clever attempt to distract us by tweeting about golf has failed.
