Jay Paterno tweeted, and then deleted the tweet you see above.
In an attempt to make a joke about infallible NCAA leader Mark Emmert, what he really did was remind everyone of his infallible father Joe Paterno.
And of course, people quickly let him have it for it.
Jay Paterno trying to tweet ironically about an infallible leader is not a good look. On many many levels.

Jay Paterno is doing a great job of reminding people about what his father did wrong. That’s what he is trying to do, right?

Jay Paterno complaining about an infallible leader of an institution is comedy at the highest.
