Mendenhall stirred up controversy with a conspiracy theory post about the attacks on the World Trade Center saying, “We’ll never know what really happened. I just have a hard time believing a plane could take a skyscraper down demolition style.”
He also posted a tweet about Osama bin Laden that questioned Americans’ celebrations over his death. “What kind of person celebrates death? It’s amazing how people can HATE a man they have never even heard speak. We’ve only heard one side…”
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review says that Mendenhall could not be reached to comment on his controversial tweets.
