There’s a fine line between hazing and bullying.

I mention that because Giants punter Steve Weatherford has posted a video on Twitter of Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul carrying cornerback Prince Amukamara down the hall and out the door and dumping him hard into a cold tub. During the procession, several players are chanting, “Cold tub!” One player can be heard mockingly urging Amukamara to stand up for himself.

Apart from the fact that Amukamara could have gotten injured, there’s something about the video that seems like something more than innocent hazing — especially since Prince isn’t a rookie.

And even though it appears that a good time is being had by all, Prince doesn’t look very happy when he gets out of the cold tub. Pierre-Paul doesn’t seem happy either, barking obscenities as he walks past the camera.

Anyway, have a look and drop a comment with your views. Is it an innocent prank? Or does it cross the line?

UPDATE 11:31 p.m. ET: YouTube has removed the video, claiming it violates the site’s “policy prohibiting content designed to harass, bully or threaten.” The video is still active at VuMee. For now.

JPP seems like a class act in that video

Poor Mr. Amukamara has to go back to his super nice house in his super nice car, crying about how all the other kids made fun of him at school today. The psychological damage will never be cured, even if he spends all his hundreds of thousands of dollars he's made from this sport last year. It's so sad it makes me cry baby tears.

Any particular reason?
Rookie hazing Prince missed out on last year because he was injured which I have no problem with, I forgot he got injured his first day in camp last year.
