Wide receiver Roddy White and his Atlanta Falcons spent Labor Day practicing ahead of the season opener. He wasn’t complaining just kind of pointing out the obvious on his Twitter account.

The problem with that is that Twitter statements open yourself up to Twitter trolls and their Twitter replies. The, oh, so brave Twitterer who hasn’t changed his profile pic, or name simply using a egg and “MSkyBlue00″ called White out for “getting paid to play a kids game” and suggested that it “is not work.” White took offense to that and responded like the snobby Instagram kid Lavish would, by calling him a peasant.

Of course that offended fans and Roddy White tried to clarify.


And later apologized.


MSkyBlue hasn’t backed down and has continued to tweet at Roddy White repeatedly, but he has wisely ignored it.
