WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson enraged a D.C. area radio host when he joked about North Korea bombing Foxborough – the home of the New England Patriots – on Wednesday.
Johnson’s tweets came after a statement from North Korea, asserting the country would respond to U.S. threats with nuclear strikes against Hawaii, Los Angeles, D.C., and Austin, Tx.

Radio host Holden Kushner of 106.7 The Fan’s “Holden and Danny” in Washington, D.C. – went ballistic on Thursday in response to the comments.
What was initially intended to be a segment grading the Redskins unseasonably quiet offseason, strayed off course then grew into a verbal lambasting of Johnson’s Twitter activity.
“All it takes is a little miscommunication and we got a big issue,” Kushner said. “So enough with the jokes. I don’t want to hear ‘em. Don’t tweet ‘em to me. I don’t want to see ‘em.”
