VIRAL: Dad Under Fire For Prom Pic Because Of What He Was Holding

Over the weekend, former NFL kicker and CBS analyst Jay Feely posted a prom picture of his daughter and her date. The photo is going viral across the internet due, in part, to the fact Feely is holding a firearm in the picture. It was simply captioned, “Wishing my beautiful daughter and her date a great time at prom.”

The photo was undoubtedly attempting to show some tongue-in-cheek humor for protecting his daughter and in reference to the move Bad Boys II, but many people online are criticizing Feely for it.

As Fox News reports, the photo drew some mixed reaction before Feely later clarified that he was joking:

Prom season is here for millions of Americans and the photos that come with it, but a “joke” picture posted Saturday by a former NFL kicker holding a gun between his daughter and her date has sparked outrage by some online.

Jay Feely, who played for the Arizona Cardinals, Miami Dolphins, New York Giants and Jets, posted a picture showing his left arm around his daughter, who is rolling her eyes at her father. In his right hand is a gun next to her date, who sports a slight grin.

Here’s more responses:

Feely later clarified his intentions with the photo: “The prom picture I posted was obviously intended to be a joke. My Daughter has dated her boyfriend for over a year and they knew I was joking. I take gun safety seriously (the gun was not loaded and had no clip in) and I did not intend to be insensitive to that important issue.”
