DeSean Jackson responded to Josh Scobee's tweets Sunday night in which the Jaguars kicker called the Eagles wide receivers a "punk" after he was flagged for taunting. 

"This man @joshscobee is Waaaaaaay outta LIne!! Stick to ya Own business.. Mind ya own!! I don’t respect what u sayin.. Lil Boi status,” Jackson wrote.

Jackson then followed up with another tweet: “I don’t even know who this guy is."

Apparently. Scobee's Twitter sign-on is @JoshScobee10.

Here's what Scobee initially wrote:

“Desean Jackson is a punk. #growuputinybastard.”

And then, after some readers complained about his first tweet, Scobee wrote:

“Relax people. He’s just a punk, which to me means he doesn’t respect anyone or anything around him. Therefore, I don’t respect him.”

Scobee apologized a day later, writing, "Shouldn’t have called Desean Jackson that, I used the wrong words to try and make my point.”

Eagles tackle Todd Herremans was confused by the apology. "Which 1? Punk, tiny or bastard?" Herremans wrote.

Eagles guard suggested on Twitter that MTV should bring back celebrity death match so Jackson and Scobee can settle their differences.

The Eagles do not play Jacksonville in their final six games.

Bummer.
