Warning: Video contains coarse language

Terrelle Pryor was the target of much derision this week after he was caught on film flinching badly when Washington Redskins defensive back D.J. Swearinger pretended to swing at him during a joint practice Tuesday.

The New York Jets receiver, who has been mocked mercilessly since, issued a statement Wednesday night, defending his non-violent approach.

It appears Pryor also sees the humor in the situation as he added the hashtag "FlinchNRunGang" to his post.
