John Mayer and Katy Perry are no longer a couple, and Dick Vitale wanted to make sure the world was reminded about their split. During the 2014 MTV VMAs on Sunday night, Vitale sent out a tweet about the former couple, and then he immediately removed what could be seen as an insensitive jab.

At this time I’m not sure if John Mayer asked Vitale to delete the MTV VMA tweet, or if perhaps he realized it could be portrayed as mean.

In the tweet Dick Vitale called Katy Perry the “ex-lady” in John Mayer’s life. Vitale in the tweet posted a picture of himself having a good time with the “Daughters” singer.

With the MTV VMAs still underway, I’m not surprised to learn that neither John Mayer or Katy Perry have responded to Dick Vitale’s tweet.
