Ex-NFL kicker Jay Feely apologizes for 'joke' prom date gun photo 

Former NFL kicker Jay Feely said he was trying to be funny when he posed in a Twitter photo standing between his daughter and her prom date holding a pistol, but in the wake of the Parkland shootings in February, social media posters did not appreciate the joke, WFLA reported.

Feely, who played in the NFL from 2001 to 2014 and is an analyst for CBS Sports, apologized Sunday. 

In the photo, Feely has his left arm around his daughter and a pistol in his right hand at his side. Next to Feely is his daughter’s prom date, who is smirking. 

"Wishing my beautiful daughter and her date a great time at prom," Feely wrote, using the hashtag "#BadBoys."

The reaction from some on social media was swift and critical.

“Oh yay -- American dads have kicked off the season of 'let’s pretend I’m going to shoot my daughter’s date for impugning her chastity' pics," tweeted Shannon Watts, who is the founder of the gun control group Moms Demand Action.

“The Stoneman Douglas shooting was 2 months ago,” author Geraldine DeRuiter posted on Twitter. “But sure, let's make jokes about murdering high schoolers.”

The backlash was vocal enough for Feely to issue an apology Sunday on Twitter.

“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," he wrote. "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."

Some Twitter users defended Feely’s post, noting that he was referencing the movie “Bad Boys 2.”

“He’s referencing a scene in the movie #BadBoys2,” Twitter user Mike McLeod wrote. “The kid knows it’s a joke -- it’s not pointed at anyone and barely in the picture. I’m sure there’s a picture with his daughter and just the date also. This isn’t anything to blow out of proportion.

Next O'Reilly book coming in September

Bill O'Reilly's next "Killing" book will be set during World War II.

"Killing the SS" is scheduled to come out September 18, Henry Holt and Co. confirmed to The Associated Press on Monday. The publisher was responding to a query from The Associated Press after the new book was listed on Amazon.com, where it's described as an "epic saga of the espionage and daring waged by self-styled 'Nazi hunters.'"

Co-written by Martin Dugard, "Killing the SS" is O'Reilly's second book in his blockbuster "Killing" series since he was forced out of Fox News amid multiple allegations of sexual harassment. His previous work, "Killing England," came out in September 2017. According to NPD BookScan, it has sold 489,000 copies, an enormous number for virtually any nonfiction author, but well off million sellers such as "Killing Lincoln" and "Killing Kennedy." (NPD tracks around 85 percent of physical book sales.)

Holt has defended O'Reilly even as other publishers have distanced themselves or dropped authors facing harassment allegations. Earlier this year, Penguin Random House cut ties with "Maze Runner" novelist James Dashner.

Shania Twain apologizes for saying she would have voted for Donald Trump

Shania Twain has apologized for comments she said were in response to a question that caught her off guard.

The country-pop singer was quoted in an interview with The Guardian published Sunday in which she said she would have voted for President Donald Trump.

“I would have voted for him because, even though he was offensive, he seemed honest,” Twain told The Guardian. “Do you want straight or polite? Not that you shouldn’t be able to have both. If I were voting, I just don’t want (expletive). I would have voted for a feeling that it was transparent. And politics has a reputation of not being that, right?”

Twain, a Canadian, could not vote in the US presidential election.

The comments didn’t sit well with fans and others, prompting a thread of apology tweets from the singer.

“I would like to apologise to anybody I have offended in a recent interview with the Guardian relating to the American President. The question caught me off guard,” Twain said Sunday. “As a Canadian, I regret answering this unexpected question without giving my response more context.

“I am passionately against discrimination of any kind and hope it’s clear from the choices I have made, and the people I stand with, that I do not hold any common moral beliefs with the current President. 

I was trying to explain, in response to a question about the election, that my limited “understanding was that the President talked to a portion of America like an accessible person they could relate to, as he was NOT a politician.

“My answer was awkward, but certainly should not be taken as representative of my values nor does it mean I endorse him. I make music to bring people together. My path will always be one of inclusivity, as my history shows.”

Twain is known for songs that espouse women’s empowerment in relationships and she’s previously expressed support of the LGBT community in interviews, celebrating the Supreme Court overturning the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013.

The Latest: Defense rests; Cosby doesn't testify

The Latest on Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial (all times local):

2:10 p.m.

Bill Cosby's lawyers have rested their case at his sexual assault retrial.

The 80-year-old comedian did not take the stand in his own defense.

He didn't testify at his first trial, either. That one ended in a hung jury last year.

Closing arguments are set for Tuesday.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a woman at his house near Philadelphia in 2004. He says it was consensual.

Jurors heard from 25 witnesses in 10 days of testimony. Cosby's lawyers called 10 of those witnesses, including a former colleague of accuser Andrea Constand who says Constand spoke of framing a high-profile person so she could sue and get money.

Prosecutors called five other women who say Cosby drugged and molested them, too.

Prosecutors are highlighting gaps in Bill Cosby's travel records.

Defense lawyers say the travel records prove he wasn't at his suburban Philadelphia mansion in January 2004 — the month his chief accuser alleges he drugged and molested her there.

But prosecutors say there are multiple stretches of time that month when the comedian wasn't aboard his private jet or performing around the country. And District Attorney Kevin Steele noted in court Monday that the records reflect only jet travel, not other modes of transportation.

Roslyn Yarbrough, a former secretary for Cosby's agent, says Cosby spent most of his time at his Massachusetts estate and New York City townhouse, and was "very rarely" at the suburban Philadelphia mansion.

9:15 a.m.

The judge in Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial won't allow his lawyers to introduce testimony they say would shed light on the possible motivation of the comedian's chief accuser.

The defense wanted jurors to hear deposition testimony from Andrea Constand's friend, Sheri Williams. Cosby's lawyers said Williams hasn't responded to subpoenas. They wanted Williams' testimony to rebut Constand's claims that she was unaware Cosby was romantically interested in her. They said Williams would show Constand "could not have been the unwitting victim" prosecutors have portrayed.

Judge Steven O'Neill rejected the defense request Monday as the trial entered its third week.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. He says it was consensual.

The Associated Press doesn't typically identify people who say they're victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand has done.

8:40 a.m.

Bill Cosby has arrived for the 11th day of his sexual assault retrial.

The 80-year-old comedian entered the suburban Philadelphia courthouse Monday morning with his spokesman, Andrew Wyatt.

Cosby's lawyers are hitting at accuser Andrea Constand's credibility.

The judge is expected to rule Monday on whether jurors can hear deposition testimony that Cosby's lawyers say could have insights into what led Constand to accuse him.

Cosby's lawyers are expected to call an agent and an aviation consultant to the witness stand as they make the case he never visited his suburban Philadelphia mansion in January 2004, the month Constand says he molested her.

Bill Cosby's lawyers and publicists are increasingly playing to the court of public opinion as his sexual assault retrial heads toward deliberations.

They're hitting at accuser Andrea Constand's credibility and holding daily press briefings portraying Cosby as the victim of an overzealous prosecutor and an unjust legal system.
