We already know that soccer players are among the toughest people in the history of tough; at long last soccer players are now taking their vaunted toughness to Twitter. Showing the strength of an expert flopper, Manchester United midfielder Darron Gibson recently joined Twitter, albeit briefly.
The reason: he was receiving too many abusive and insulting messages.
The culprits: MANCHESTER UNITED’S OWN FANS!
After receiving a slew of messages telling him that he didn’t deserve to be on ManU and that he had no skills, Gibson stood up like a man and…deleted his account 97 minutes later.
It’s nice when the fans of the league-leading team have time out of their days to berate one of the people they are supposed to be cheering for. Job well done fans. Job well done Gibson.
