Baylor's Art Briles Getting Crushed For This #TruthDontLie Tweet

Baylor football coach Art Briles (or someone running his account) sent out a tweet on Wednesday that he probably shouldn't have. 

The tweet was about the Bears' success on the field and included hashtags #truthdontlie and #realitynohype.

The former hashtag, #truthdontlie, is what has some people upset.

Baylor is currently at the center of a sexual assault scandal. A lawsuit has been filed and there are multiple allegations from women who claim to have been assaulted by Bears' football players. Baylor students have complained about the university's response to the claims. Briles' tweet prompted the following responses on Twitter.

Regardless of what's true and what's not, the use of the #truthdontlie is a pretty big oversight. You can read more responses here
