Denver Post writer embarrassed by "horny" Olympics tweet

Shares

The Denver Post’s John Henderson has just won the gold medal for tweeting out something pervy during the summer Olympics.

In a tweet that has since been deleted, but was up on his account for more than 24 hours, Henderson tweeted, “That was fun. First time I’ve gotten horny covering the Olympics. Thank you!”

Henderson, who only has 490 followers, sent the tweet while writing about teenage swimmers, Deadspin reported.

On Monday, Henderson tried to clear the air in an interview with Denver weekly Westword.

“I was having an innocent direct Twitter conversation with a reader before the Opening Ceremonies and she just said a couple things that got me excited," Henderson told Westword.  "Somehow, someway, I sent a response to my general Twitter account and not to her directly.”

While Henderson might be the most high profile Twitter user to make Twitter his personal  bathroom stall wall during the summer games, he’s certainly not the only one to get hot and bothered during specific events. Since the Olympics have started, the words “horny” and “Olympics” have been tweeted about 1,000 times, according to statistics from Topsy, a social media search engine.

“UGH the Olympics makes me so horny,” tweeted @leggomyago late Tuesday night.

So no worries, Henderson. You’re not alone. But maybe next time, when you’re watching a heat, try not to tweet about being in heat.
