Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson took to Twitter to respond to a Deadspin report that he used a gay slur in a response to a caller during a Sirius XM radio show.

The "All Out Show" airs on Eminen's hip hop channel.

Jackson was asked by a caller whether he ever had his "[penis] knocked around in the dirt." Jackson responded with the gay slur.

On Twitter, Jackson wrote in two tweets in all caps late last night:
