OT: When Keeping it Real (on Twitter) Goes Wrong 

Post#1 » by JXL » Thu Jun 9, 2016 8:20 pm

Dude on Twitter gets into dumb crap on cussing out the Aunt of Riley Curry and the entire Curry family, then gets fired, and gloats about it. The lesson? Twitter trolls and pieces of garbage deserve bad things to happen to them.

This is the troll who thinks is worth TV time. Someone in Cleveland kick his ass...

no one has ever kept it real behind a computer screen. you're only keeping it real if you mouth off while there's a chance of being punched in the face

That guy sounds like a young Frank Isola. He should send his resume to the daily news.

The real problem here is why is there even any coverage about this dude? People giving him airtime.
It's the internet. You can block people on social media. You can turn monitors & laptops off.
People say a lot of dumb ch!t everyday online. Pretty sure there has been worse things said.
Stop giving these people their 5 seconds of fame. Negative fame or positive fame, a person can still try to benefit from it. Next thing you know, they have their own stupid reality show.

He's corny for tweeting that crap & Steph's sister is corny for even responding to such a low comment. Just block & move on if it irks you. You can't control others actions.

Now this is real.

I was going to point out something similar but you took care of it nicely.

More idiots like this need to face the consequences of running their mouths through a computer screen. Hopefully this is the start of something.

Smart people either don't use social media or use it in a way that financially benefits them.

Both that trash-talking loser and Steph's sister got exposed for being low IQ people.

Man if Curry doesn't have a fire in his belly after that then he's just gonna be ass the rest of the Finals.

If that was me & I was playing pretty bad in a series & I read that about my daughter, that would just fuel me to be on some fu*k Cleveland I'm dropping 60 on their head.

That dude is an a**hole forreal.

I can't believe I read that whole thing. There are so many stories like that though unfortunately. It's worse outside the U.S.

The only positive that comes from this, is that now I'm aware how hot Curry's sister is.
