Mark Ingram Made Fun Of Jemele Hill's Looks, Called Her "Tales From The Crypt"

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram crossed a line early Tuesday morning. Expect the tweet you'll see below to get some serious play in the coming days.

Monday night, ahead of the national title game between Alabama and Clemson, Ingram, a former Crimson Tide running back (and Heisman winner), was an honorary captain. When ESPN's cameras panned to show Ingram at midfield, he appeared much smaller than current Alabama tailback Derrick Henry, leading to a number of jokes at his expense.

ESPN's Jemele Hill was one to take advantage. She joked that if the two were brothers, it'd be clear that Henry got the size and speed, while Ingram got the strong hairline.

Well, Ingram clearly wasn't thrilled. He responded, telling Hill that she looks like "Tales From The Crypt." He also said that she wears a lace front. Serious escalation, to say the least.

Probably not the best PR move. We'll see if there is any fallout.
