Calipari tried to explain away her tweet (a joke, I suppose) as a response to an offensive comment about her family and by saying she doesn't make random jokes about sex offenders, but a) there's no evidence of that provocation beyond what she's mentioned, b) she made the alleged child molestation by Syracuse assistant Bernie Fine central to her retort, which she equated to making a joke about her family, and c) one of Fine's accusers admitted to lying about it and charged another accuser with telling him to lie, which muddies the water a bit.
There was probably no good way for Calipari to make fun of Syracuse by way of mentioning potential child molestation without stepping in something, but, to be fair, this doesn't reflect poorly on her father, king of epic humblebrags and head-scratching shoutouts. It does, however, reflect poorly on her that she thought that she was being witty, and it reflects somewhat poorly on the Kentucky fans who flocked to defend her.
(Of note: this was all touched off by Kentucky fans poking fun at Billy Donovan's wife baking him a cake to celebrate landing two five-star prospects, which is sweet and corny at the same time, and led Calipari to lament how far behind in celebrating her dad's achievements she was, which was actually kind of funny. Go #BBN?)
The lesson from all of this is that
I have changed my mind and no one should use Twitter it is probably a bad idea to work child molestation into your jokes. Adults should probably not need to learn that lesson, though, I think.
