Jack Del Rio Deletes Twitter Account After Jan. 6 Tweet Controversy

Following the controversy from his comments last week regarding the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection, Commanders defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio has deleted his Twitter account.

Del Rio initially commented on the insurrection via Twitter ahead of Congressional hearings, comparing the insurrection to the protests after George Floyd was killed, which he called “riots.” He later doubled down on his comments to the media, leading to more public criticism.

“Let’s get right down to it, what did I ask?” Del Rio said Wednesday. “A simple question: Why are we not looking into those things? Because it’s kind of hard for me to say I can realistically look at it, I see the images on TV, people’s livelihoods are being destroyed, businesses are being burned down—no problem.
