Social media has proven a double-edged sword for Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond.

One of the NBA's most active players on Twitter, Drummond has sent out more than 15,000 tweets to his 819,000 followers. Drummond even used Twitter to flirt with, and briefly date, Hollywood starlet Jennette McCurdy.

But now Drummond is feeling the consequences of the not-so-positive publicity produced by social media.

Drummond, 21, recently sent out this photo to his followers on Snapchat. See if you can figure out what about the image caused a controversy:

Notice how fast Drummond is driving: nearly 100 miles per hour on Detroit's I-75. The speed limit on that highway, in case you were curious, is 70 miles per hour.

Drummond confirmed the photo was his and apologized for his actions.

"It was a silly mistake," Drummond told reporters. "I'll own up to it and move on from here. It won't happen again."

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy chimed in too.

"I know you're young and you think you're indestructible, but for the people that care about you, it's scary as hell," Van Gundy said. "I don't want to wake up and read about Andre Drummond in an accident. That's the issue to me."

The controversy, if this was one, didn't seem to affect Drummond on the court. In the Pistons' next game, Drummond came up one rebound shy of a double-double while recording this highlight reel dunk over Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka:

Things didn't go so well for Drummond's Pistons, who fell to the Thunder for their 12th straight defeat.
