Poor Johnny. Fuck Johnny. Those are the only two sentences I hear myself muttering nowadays. Sometimes I feel bad for the dude because he can’t take a dump without the media picking the corn out of it (guilty!) but then the more I think about it, he’s brought everything on himself. From the domestic violence case, to getting in an altercation at a WEDDING, to claiming sobriety and then breaking it in the same breath, it’s tough to root for a guy who seemingly isn’t rooting for himself. But not all members of the Manziel family are sabotaging themselves. 20-year-old Meri Manziel is currently studying to get a business degree with hopes of becoming a Neiman Marcus buyer. Meri told the New York Post that her big bro has expressed his distaste for some of the more proactive Instagram pictures she’s posted to her 17,000 followers.
“Johnny got mad at the last one I posted in Saratoga [Springs, NY],” she admitted.
“He was like, ‘I don’t know how I feel about that,’ ” she says with a laugh. “My dad doesn’t have an Instagram, and I think we need to keep it that way.”
The photo in question…
Johnny picks an interesting time to get high and mighty. Regardless of the negative press Johnny has been receiving over the past couple years, Meri insists that she isn’t worried about her brother, a sentiment that she does not share with her father, who called his son a “druggie.”
“I know who he is as a person, and I’ve never been concerned or worried about anything he’s ever done.”
I know I’m holding on to a broken dream here, but I really hope Johnny can turn it around, and if being a productive football player isn’t in the cards, a productive member of society would be a huge win. Now let’s check out Meri.
