Despite Davis' decision to delete the Tweets in short order, the condemnation was swift and came from all corners. MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani responded and Davis apologized:

The Big Leadhad the response I found the most apt:

I just hope no one shows Davis this entire portion of the Sports Illustrated website dedicated to this homoerotic activity. Or tells him that CBS Sports has a partnership with MixedMartialArts.com. Otherwise a prude like Seth Davis might have to block his employers' websites on his sons' computers. Until then, he can proudly allow his boys to watch boxing where they can learn the proper way for men to touch other men.No homo.
