LeSean McCoy on spoiling 'Avengers: Endgame' opening weekend: 'Worst decision of my life'


American Football

"Avengers: Endgame" was released more than a year ago, so it shouldn't need to be said. But, just in case, spoiler alert!

Back on April 26, 2019, LeSean McCoy tweeted out five words — seven if you want to get technical about abbreviations — that would change his life forever. Prior to millions of Marvel fans heading to theaters on opening weekend to watch "Avengers: Endgame," McCoy told the world that Iron Man had died.

(He also spelled Tony Stark incorrectly, but reacting to "Toney" before anything else is like commenting on poor lawn care in front of a burning house.)

McCoy addressed the infamous spoiler with NFL Network's Kyle Brandt, who asked about the fallout from the incident. McCoy told Brandt he watched "Avengers: Endgame" with his son and did a fake interview with him after the film ended, a father-son tradition. McCoy then tweeted Stark's fate without realizing he was about to leave a gigantic fanbase extremely upset.

"That was the worst decision of my life. ... I tweeted it, just having fun," McCoy said. "But I didn't know the reaction of the people. I didn't know that. If I knew that, I would have never tweeted that. I didn't know that people really got into the cartoons like that. I apologize. It was terrible. It was a bad decision."

Unfortunately for McCoy, he can't just snap his fingers and take it back.
