Brek Shea Posted—Then Quickly Deleted—This Very American Photo

Why yes, Shea is from Texas, how did you guess?

About an hour ago, the USMNT and Stoke City winger posted this photo to his Instagram—two guns, stars-and-stripes tanktop, 'Murrika all over.


Then, just a few minutes later, poof. Photo deleted. No explanation given, but Shea was taking a good amount of heat on Twitter, mostly from British people who don't find big guns particularly cool. This also comes a month after Shea posted a photo of a pig's head left in the Stoke City locker room, exposing a prank war that had turned mean-spirited.

Shea's worn out his welcome at Stoke, making just two substitute appearances after joining the club in January. He was recovering from a broken foot, but since-fired manager Tony Pulis appeared to question Shea's fitness.
