Terrible news, Steelers fans. Running back Le'Veon Bell tweeted this morning that he's leaving the Steelers:
it's been a great run with Steeler Nation, I will always have love 4 all my former teammates, coaches, & for all my fans! but gotta move on!— Le'Veon Bell (@L_Bell26) April 1, 2016
That tweet probably made your heart stop, if you didn't know today is April Fools' Day. Some people believed it, at least for a few seconds. Even local rapper Mac Miller responded to the prank. Take a look:
@L_Bell26 chill bro lol— Mac (@MacMiller) April 1, 2016
@L_Bell26 WHY— Bradley Shimel (@shimcakes26) April 1, 2016
That guy's right. There's no way Bell is leaving the Steelers, at least for now.
After about an hour and a half of leaving fans hanging, Bell tweeted confirmation of the prank:
LOL!!! some fell for it, some didn't...but anyways APRIL FOOLS!— Le'Veon Bell (@L_Bell26) April 1, 2016
What's next? Andrew McCutchen tweets he's cutting off his trademark dreadlocks? Oh wait.
