In the digital age, fans and experts are more accessible to athletes more than ever before. Of course, this isn’t always a good thing, as some people use social media to heckle players.
The key is taking it in stride and making light of these online bullies. That’s exactly what a bunch of Big Ten players did in this hilarious video, during which the athletes read some mean tweets sent to them.
Some of the Big Ten’s best players read some of their hate mail at Big Ten Media Days earlier in the week. Some of the reactions are priceless.
Check out the video right here. And make sure to think before you type. Athletes are humans too.
