Hazing in NFL locker rooms has become a common occurrence, and New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara was the most recent victim.

Take a look (WARNING: Following video contains NSFW language):

UPDATE: Sunday, August 19 at 5:59 p.m. ET by Austin Green

The video was leaked onto the internet by punter Steve Weatherford, who posted a link to it on his Twitter account. Weatherford still hasn't deleted the tweet, but he did issue an apology on Sunday.

Weatherford likely tweed the apology after a stern talk with head coach Tom Coughlin, who is well-known for his no-nonsense approach to the game. Will Brinson of CBS Sports reported that the coach was not happy with the video, and he would ensure that the players are more responsible with social media.

----------END OF UPDATE-------------

Why exactly the second-year pro is being hazed like he's a rookie is unknown, but maybe that's why the former Nebraska corner appears so mad at what appears to be a harmless joke.

Therein lies the problem, as this hazing has resulted in more debate than likely initially intended (via the Star-Ledger's Mike Garafolo):

The debate over the video was just that: Was this a form of chemistry-building hazing or did it go too far? And was Pierre-Paul’s use of vulgarities and racially-insensitive words a problem or typical banter between players?

Today, Tom Coughlin didn’t get into specifics and said he had just heard about the incident about an hour before his conference call with reporters. But the coach sounded as if he wasn’t too pleased with the situation.

In fact, punter Steve Weatherford has already issued an apology for posting the video (via Twitter):

Amukamara not only seemed upset in the video, but he has quite a few not-so-happy sounding quotes in that same article by Garafolo.

What did you think of the hazing?

Nonetheless, a prank is a prank, and as long as the New York Giants continue to win Super Bowls, I think the locker room is in pretty fine shape.

Especially with a prank as simple as this one:

Find an athletic buff freak like Jason Pierre-Paul who can toss the 210-pound Amukamara over his shoulder like a freaking rag doll, carry said rag doll through the locker room, throw said rag doll in ice cold water.

Boom, roasted. End of story, hopefully.
