Torrey Smith Says Patriots Fans Taunted Him About His Brother’s Death
The home fans are supposed to cheer for their team and boo the opponent, but the crowd in New England clearly crossed the line following Sunday’s AFC Championship game.
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith says that Patriots fans have sent angry tweets taunting him about the death of his younger brother. Smith lose his brother, Tevin Jones, in September after a tragic motorcycle accident.
“Played a lot of games since my brothers death and I never received as many rude tweets after a win than Sunday…yet NE fans cry about class,” Smith tweeted on Tuesday.
Ridiculous. Sometimes you have to take a step back and acknowledge that it’s just a game. No one deserves to be treated like that. These are real people with real emotions. It’s not some video game or movie.
If Mrs. Wes Welker is looking to whine about something, how about this.
