We’ve seen plenty of tweets from our favorite athletes where they’ve completely struck out on getting after a fan, but after last week’s hilarious Dwight Howard response to a fan bashing him for leaving the Lakers last month for the Rockets, it got us thinking about some of the posts that athletes actually turned into comedians, getting the best of the haters.
So we did our research, putting together this list of five to help entertain youâ€”so remember to be careful the next time you tweet to an athlete.
5. Ian Poulter – PGA Golfer
Poulter is a known agitator amongst his peers on the PGA tour, so when he responded to the guys who yell the most outrageous things ever following a shot from a golfer, it wasn’t completely random.
Tweeting out, “We should be allowed to take 10’000 volt taxers onto the course and taxer every puppet who shouts out something stupid. I would laugh then.”
His comments might not have been directed at a specific fan, but to the entire group of bros who go nuts for another man hitting a golf ball.
