HOUSTON The season from hell continues for the Houston Texans.
A sexually explicit video posted on rookie receiver Deandre Hopkins Instagram account set off a Twitter firestorm Wednesday morning.
The video was deleted within minutes.
Hopkins girlfriend quickly posted an explanation on his @Nukdabomb Twitter account: Instagram was hacked, this is his girlfriend he s in meetings with no phone, have some respect ppl.
Hopkins later said he was at practice when the video was posted.
It s not my genitals, he told KHOU 11 News reporter Sherry Williams.
The first round draft pick appeared to be taking the whole thing in stride.
I wasn t upset at all because I have no need to be upset about something that was not me, Hopkins said. Yeah, it s funny that somebody would take time out of their day to do that.
Hopkins said some of his teammates saw the pictures and are giving him a hard time.
These like my brothers. My brothers would joke about this.
Fans also responded with a fury of bad puns, sexual innuendos and, in some cases, angry retorts on social media.
Hopkins said he learned a lesson thanks to the hacker: Make a harder password, first of all. That s the only thing I can do to prevent another situation like this.
