Seahawks punter Jon Ryan deleted both his Twitter and Instagram accounts Sunday night following a testy interaction with a fan on Instagram about homosexuality, according to the Seattle PI.

Ryan’s post appeared to refer to the mass shooting Sunday at a gay nightclub in Orlando, the PI reports. One commenter wrote: “Where in the bible does it say it’s ok to be (sic) homo sexual?” Ryan responded, “… please unfollow me. You’re a terrible human being … please stop cheering for the Seahawks. We don’t want piece of (expletive) fans like you. Thanks.”

Ryan’s fiancé, Sarah Colonna, confirmed in a tweet that Ryan is done with social media:

The 34-year-old Ryan has been both candid and humorous on social media in the past, posting nearly 7,000 tweets. ESPN’s Sheil Kapadia named Ryan the best Seahawk to follow on social media Sunday morning, hours before Ryan deleted his accounts.
