Local social media expert weighs in on string of controversial posts

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (CBS5) -

Controversial tweets have grabbed some headlines over the past few days. 

After the Cardinals beat the Seattle Seahawks Sunday, a Washington congressman tweeted, "Losing a football game sucks. Losing to a desert racist wasteland sucks a lot."

A public relations expert is looking for a new job after her tweet prior to her trip to South Africa: "Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm white."

Cardinals player Darnell Dockett has been deflecting accusations after his tweet earlier this week: "Apple has a new device out for Chinese people. The iOpener."

"I think it's not impossible to be funny and entertaining, clever without being offensive," said Phoenix social media expert Andrew Knochel. "I think it's harder for some people than it should be."
