April 4, 2013 Updated Nov 9, 2013 at 7:50 PM EDT

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson is under fire yet again for something posted on his twitter page.

Wednesday night, Johnson tweeted: "War is nothing to be played with. I apologize North Korea......but if y'all da bomb 1st.. Bomb Foxboro, Mass. Sincerely, #BillsMafia"

Johnson was making a jab at Foxboro, Massachusetts, the home of the Bills' AFC East rival New England Patriots. He was referencing the most recent threat by North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.

Less than three hours later, Johnson apologized, tweeting: "i know some of yall too it too serious.. but i have Much Respect for The Pats along with Every other NFL Team. Gonna to be a Great #NFL2013."

The tweet is gaining national recognition.
