Richard Sherman Gives Perfect Response to Twitter Troll (Pic)
On Monday, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman took to the radio and to Twitter to heap praise on Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning. And most people thought it was a classy gesture that brought him at least one step closer to redemption for his epic rant against Michael Crabtree following the NFC Championship Game.
However, not everybody was impressed. In fact, there was one nameless Twitter user with the handle @SnBEternally who decided to respond by trolling the hell out of the guy.
Their first snipe said, “Everyone who heard you dissing Manning before knows you don’t mean a damn word of this, you pathetic, disingenuous punk.” Then, after not receiving a response, they added, “Take your phony praise and shove it up your drugged out ass, you worthless scumbag.” And, finally, they threw in, “Seattle beat Denver, but you contributed nothing and got carted off with an injury. Karma’s a NASTY bitch, needle Dick! :P”
Of course there’s usually no way to shut up a troll. Every time you respond, you’re just giving them the attention and conflict they crave. However, Sherman managed to shut @SnBEternally up with one single tweet:
How perfect was this response? So perfect, apparently, that @SnBEternally shut down their Twitter account rather than deal with any more people telling them they got burned.
Well done, Richard Sherman.
