Cheerleader Kicked Off Team for Offensive Acts

Editor's note: Although this site is primarily geared towards California news, we from time to time step outside the state and see what is going on around the nation and the rest of the world.

Does another young woman have a date with Playboy in the offing?

It seems we report just about every other week on some young female who is in the wrong place at the wrong time. This time it is former New England Patriots cheerleader Caitlin Davis.

It appears Davis, 18, was recently removed from the team's cheerleading squad after
pictures of her with a passed-out man covered in offensive drawings surfaced on her Facebook account.

Davis, who lost her gig due to several pictures showing her alongside a drunk, unconscious man covered in offensive markings including two swastikas and words describing male genitalia, reportedly refused to take responsibility for any of the images on the man's body saying that was just his Halloween costume which she and her friends found interesting.

"The kid in the picture was a 'drunk guy who passed out and was written on,' as his costume for the night," Davis told celebrity gossip Web site in a statement, explaining she was unaware of the signs at the time she jumped in the picture with the "kid." However, Davis said she considers herself fully responsible for not being more alert.

In her audition tape to become a Patriots cheerleader, Davis claimed that the most important reason she wanted to become part of the pompom squad was to spread "a good image" for the team.

Safe to say the Patriots don't view her in that light any longer.

In the meantime, don't be surprised if Hugh Hefner comes calling.
