NBA reporter Mark Haynes, brother of TNT sideline reporter Chris Haynes, is going to have to answer some questions about his old tweets.

On Saturday night, Mark, who is a beat reporter covering the Golden State Warriors, apparently annoyed Warriors fans when he implied that Steph Curry was front running at the end of game 2 of the Western Conference finals vs. the Mavericks.

After the Curry comment, Warriors fans began digging at Haynes’ Twitter account and found several old problematic tweets.

Haynes went on to delete his Twitter account hours after his old tweets went viral and he was trending on Twitter.

Update: Clutch Points, Haynes’ employer, released a statement regarding Haynes’ offensive tweets.
