When you're a professional athlete you know you're going to be subjected to all sorts of hateful words, everybody knows that. But do you ever see them retaliate? No, because they're professionals that people look up to. They're taught to turn the other cheek and let hateful words go. It's just people being ignorant and abusing their right to free speech. Luckily, we live in a country where you can say whatever you want, and be able to voice your opinion without retaliation (even the ignorant people like racists and Westboro Baptist Church).
@Kody_Mac sorry bro. The message that was sent to me is uncalled for. And I want people to know who this guy is. -@pinkpuka57
@pinkpuka57 Calling him out over twitter is one thing, posting his phone number is another. Somebody could actually get hurt that way. -@Kody_Mac
What are your thoughts on this? Should athletes be held to a higher standard even on the internet?
