Former University of Michigan and NFL kicker Jay Feely apologized for a photo he intended as a joke, showing him holding a gun as he poses with his daughter and her prom date.

“Wishing my beautiful daughter and her date a great time at prom,” the CBS Sports analyst wrote in a Twitter post on Saturday night, showing him holding a gun at his side, with his daughter rolling her eyes on one side and her date grinning on the other side.

The photo got more than 60,000 likes and 10,000 retweets, but there also was enough negative backlash to the photo, intended as a joke, that Feely went back on Twitter to apologize on Sunday.
