Tackled Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader Forced Off Twitter?

"I'm not the best at Jason Witten trust falls. ;) "

The Dallas Cowboys cheerleader who was accidentally tackled by a 265-pound tight end during a Thanksgiving Day game has reportedly been forced off Twitter after taking to the micro-blogging site to write about the encounter.

According to CNBC's Darren Rovell, 22-year-old Melissa Kellerman was forced to delete her account Friday after posting two tongue-in-cheek tweets about what happened:

Kellerman's once-active Twitter page now returns an error message.

"Shame on the Cowboys for pulling cheerleader @MelissaRae off Twitter. Not allowing these girls to capitalize is criminal," Rovell wrote on his own account.

He added, "If Cowboys don't trust the cheerleaders to speak for themselves, why do they even interview them for the squad?

As Yahoo! Sports' Chris Chase pointed out, the team allows cameras to film cheerleader auditions for a reality show, making the decision to stop Kellerman from tweeting seem even more suspect.

"It's alright when the team controls the message but not when a cheerleader begins to get a following and has the stage to herself?" he wrote. "Witten looked chivalrous when he helped up Kellerman, she became endearing with her laughter and positive attitude. Both the franchise and the cheerleaders looked good after this. Now, only Kellerman does."
