AJ McCarron’s mom, Dee Dee McCarron, sparked outrage after she sent out a controversial tweet about Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston’s postgame interview on Monday night.

Dee Dee McCarron Apologizes

“Am I listening to English?” McCarron posted to Twitter before quickly deleting it. She later returned tweet an apology.

During Winston’s interview after Florida State's BCS Championship game win against Auburn, he was asked about what he and coach Jimbo Fisher said to one another upon the final whistle.

“We champions. We can share that. We are champions together,” Winston said. “And through everything that we went through, through all the haters, through every single thing, we came out victorious. God did this. I’m so blessed. He’s so blessed. All the stuff that he handled with Ethan [Fisher’s son] and he come out here and coach us? That touched me. And it’s nobody but God. It’s nobody.”

Winston, this past season’s Heisman winner and the winner of the BCS MVP award, was also asked about how he led the Seminoles to victory.

"I said guys, we didn't come here for no reason,” Winston said. “I said, 'Guys, this is ours, man.' All the adversity we went through the first few quarters, it was ours to take. And like I've been saying, we control our own destiny, and those men looked me in my eye and said 'We got this, Jameis.' I said, 'Are you strong?' They said, ‘I'm strong if you strong.’ I said, 'We strong then.'"

Although Winston may not have been fully articulate or grammatically correct in his interview, the sentiment of his words came through to many, including LeBron James and Reggie Bush. The professional athletes both took to Twitter upon hearing Winston’s remarks to praise the 20-year-old athlete.
