The NFL's Kansas City Chiefs have barred star running back Larry Johnson from all team activities as the club and league look into comments he made Monday.

In telling reporters to get away from him, Johnson used a slur that referred to gays. He used the same slur on Twitter in an exchange with one of his followers.

A day later, he used a gay slur again as he brushed off reporters and told them he had no comment, according to the Kansas City Star, which recorded this.

He has also posted demeaning remarks about Coach Todd Haley, questioning his authority. Yeesh. Now that's a lot worse than any Bob Griese taco comment.

Larry Johnson eludes a tackler. And basic social decency.

In a statement released through his agent, Johnson apologized for his remarks, though in the list of people to whom he apologized, he did not mention gays.

Last season, Herman Edwards, who was the Chiefs’ coach, benched Larry Johnson for three games for a then-unspecified violation of the team's rules.

Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for a fourth game for violating the NFL player-conduct policy in connection with incidents involving women in bars.

Johnson, who has 358 yards on 132 rushes and no touchdowns in 2009, was sentenced to two years’ probation after pleading guilty todisturbing the peace.

We'll see if he takes the field anytime soon this year.

Chris Brown is gettin' all introspective and emotional these days.

There's little doubt who the troubled star was referring to when he took to his Twitter page to virtually reflect on and yearn for "The Way We Used to Be."

He linked to a fan-made YouTube video montage, set to the tune of R. Kelly's "The Way We Used to Be," showing footage of Rihanna and Chris Brown.

Back before he destroyed their love and her cheekbones, that is.

"IM SORRY YALL. JUST HAD TO POST IT," he wrote with the link.

CB TWIT

In other news, Chris' Twitter name is MechanicalDummy.

It was a pretty blatant appeal to the ex-girlfriend he's not allowed within 100 yards of. But Brown, who released his new single last week, wasn't done there.

A few minutes after posting the video, the singer Twittered the following message of inspiration to all you love-struck guys out there: "FOR THE FELLAS: showing emotion doesn't make u weak... BEING HONEST MAKES U STRONG."

That may be. But a YouTube video set to a song by a guy best known for urinating on girls and child porn charges may not be the best way of showing it.

Here's a look at the way Chris Brown and Rihanna used to be ...

Finally, Miley Cyrus has shut up about the deletion of her Twitter account.

Unfortunately, though, no one told John Mayer that he's a giant douchebag. Or that the nation is sick of hearing about the end of Cyrus Tweeting.

Asked by MTV about Miley's decision, Mayer rambled on with a defense of the Disney star. He said:

"I think she's smart enough to realize there is some interference of the brain that she doesn't want to deal with. Artists have enough to deal with. She's a child, she's a fantastic artist - I think there's enough mental real estate being taken up by dealing with all of that stuff."

  • Mayer in Concert
  • Sex Scene

Mayer wasn't finished making little sense. He added:

"For whatever reason, I am old enough and smart enough to tell someone to go f-ck themselves if they tell me to go f-ck myself. I think if you're in Miley's situation, it might take a little too much time to play goalie for your own heart and mind. So I totally get it.

"Nobody hates Miley Cyrus; they're just picking up on her brand, repurposing it, to try to make a little bit of Miley cash. It's damaging people's minds. Imagine Shannon Doherty with a Twitter account, back in the '90210' days. That would've just flat-out killed her."

Fortunately, instead of writing about her life, Doherty went out and lived it, acting like a bitch, making a sex tape and getting kicked off numerous shows.

As for Mayer, would he ever drop out of Twitter?

"I would rather tell the world to eat my a--hole before I would delete my Twitter account."

That's good to know. John Mayer cares more about his Twitter account than about his fans.

Someone out there knows how to sweet talk - or sweet Tweet, really - The Hollywood Gossip.

As known fans of The Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato, we were thrilled to receive the following photos of the young icons in concert over the weekend. An avid reader sent them in via Twitter.

The pics aren't top quality, but they're an in-person account of the stars doing what they do best. We love that kind of stuff!

Thanks so much for Tweeting the images to us, loyal THG reader Mario San Martín, and we encourage others to do the same; and/or to at least follow us on Twitter. Unlike Miley Cyrus, we promise never to leave you.

John Mayer may be a douchebag who Googles himself 24/7 and is way too obsessed with Twitter and what people think of him, but we give him credit here.

In addressing one of the recent rumors about him in the celebrity gossip world (while conveniently ignoring another), Johnny posted the following Tweets ...

  • Rumor check: went to gay bar in Palm Springs, correct. Had a blast. Danced my face off. Someone there planted a kiss on me? No.
  • I don't like the story painting gays as unable to control themselves. Found the crowd even more respectful than in a straight club.
  • You know who the most flamboyant crowd is? Straight, drunk girls. They're like a bunch of little Charles Nelson Reillys.

Robert Pattinson's John Mayer's new album cover.

You have to appreciate him going out of his way to shoot down this rumor stemming from gay stereotypes. Unfortunately, regarding those rumors that John Mayer and Jennifer Aniston are back together, he didn't comment. Hmm.

He did post the cover of his new album, natch. See above. What a douchebag.

Looks like one of many Robert Pattinson pictures we've posted of late, with that vintage Edward Cullen hair. Also, the Mayer seems to be emulating the way the New Moon hunk often poses open-mouthed. So seductive.

Only R-Pattz can pull it off, though. Sorry John. Better luck next time.

Meghan McCain, the daughter of U.S. Senator and failed 2008 presidential candidate John McCain, caused quite a (sexy!) stir on Twitter Wednesday evening.

The 24-year-old, currently a blogger and columnist for the Daily Beast living in New York City, posted a rather, um, voluptuous picture of herself online.

You can see it drew more interest than most Meghan McCain pictures ...

Meghan McCain Twitter Pic

Meghan McCain at her bachelorette pad on a typical night. Wowzers.

She has since apologized for posting the photo, although it's still up for the world to see. Needless to say, she received plenty of feedback, good and bad.

"You should put a pink bow over this photo and call it a tribute to breast cancer awareness month," said one Twitter fan, humorously and inappropriately.

But not everyone reacted so kindly. After more than a few cries of SLUT!!!!, Megs threatened to pull a Miley Cyrus and straight up quit Twitter forever. 

She wrote: "ok I am getting the f**k off twitter, promise not to delete my account until I sleep on it, thank you for the nice words supporters."

"When I am alone in my apartment, I wear tank tops and sweat pants, I had no idea this makes me a 'slut', I can't even tell you how hurt I am ... seriously I was just trying to be funny with the book and that I'm a dork staying in."

This morning she was back to plugging her column on her page, however.

What do you think of the Meghan McCain Twitter pic controversy?

Soulja Boy is either a freaking moron or he has a death wish.

In what could quite possibly be the dumbest move of all time, which is saying a lot for a rich star, the rapper wants to set the record straight: He is rich.

Amanda Bynes Twit Pic

So much so, he keeps tens of thousands of dollars in cash in a shoe box at home. He made this abundantly clear with this video. So there, all U h8rs!

Ranting and posting like a madman on Twitter, he takes issue with celeb gossip reports that his landlord accused him of owing $10,000 in unpaid bills.

Dude was already robbed last December. Funny how that works. Whatever the reason, though, Soulja Boy feels the need to Tell Em off in this way.

Soulja Boy is as smart as the spelling of his name would indicate.

Arrogant prick that he is, SB whips out wad after wad of $100 bills while one of his friends says: "wow .... wow ... wow." Yup, his friends are complete a$$holes too.

He also Twittered: "For every blog site who posted that bullsh*t, F**K YOU."

Then followed it with: "I know all you lame ass haters is Thirsty to see my downfall. But keep fucking dreaming go find another rapper to hate cuz I GOT THIS SH*T"

Hopefully, he uses one of those wads of $100s on a state-of-the-art security system, because we're guessing he's going to need it. Way to keep a low profile, idiot.

What would supposed Soulja Boy fiancee Rosa Acosta say?

In case you didn't know Miley Cyrus deleted her Twitter.

Then the teen queen rapped about it in a YouTube video.

Then Billy Ray Cyrus, her dad, urged her to come back, because the world needs its Destiny and Hope. Yes, really. These people aren't at all self-important.

In a spoof of this riveting saga, Jimmy Fallon dressed up as Billy Ray and made a rap video of his own, looking to gobble up Miley's Twitter fans for himself!

The Late Night host donned a wig and a pair of dungarees in an attempt to get Miley's two million lost souls to support her country-singin' daddy instead.

Among the choice lyrics from the faux father of Miles:

"Hey there America, let's make this clear. Miley might be gone, but I'm still here ..." "As long as my heart's still beatin', I'm gonna be Tweetin' 'cause I got a full house like my name was Jodie Sweetin ... Achy-Breaky Tweets!"

Pretty good. Check out Billy Ray's rap ...

The Hollywood Gossip is not too proud to admit: we may now be the second most popular Twitter destination on the Internet.

This sad news comes on the heels of the announcement that New Moon has officially opened an account (@Twilight) on the social networking system.

Amanda Bynes Twit Pic

While THG offers the most insightful, humorous, jarring celebrity gossip stories on the Web (Seriously. Follow us today.), we can't compete with exclusive shots from the most anticipated movie of the year.

Earlier today, for example, this TwitPic of Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner flirting, while Robert Pattinson looks on menacingly, was released by the film's Twitter handler:

Also, New Moon director Chris Weitz has told fans that his movie will run for two hours and 10 minutes. Will this be enough time to drool over Robsten in all its glory? It will have to be.

Until Eclipse comes out, that is. And Breaking Dawn. And the next supermarket tabloid that lies about how far along Kristen Stewart is in her pregnancy.
