Brandon Marshall Slams ESPN on Twitter After Broadcast

Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall on Tuesday night took to Twitter to lash out at ESPN for a profile broadcast on the network's E:60 program.

"E:60 is running a piece on me tonight that they lied to me about," Marshall wrote. "It was suppose to be a story on a camp. They followed me around 2 years ago and at the end put a camera in my face to talk about it and asked nothing [about] the camp or the community weekend."

The profile, which originally aired in 2012 and reported on Marshall's rough childhood and the incidents of domestic violence in his life, was edited with new content and re-aired Tuesday. The timing, from the network's perspective, seemed appropriate given the headlines made recently by former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice.

But Marshall didn't see it that way, and said ESPN was unfairly telling his story without context.

Reached by NBC Chicago late Tuesday, Marshall said he had no further comment.
