Offensive lineman Jonathan Martin became the face of bullying after abruptly leaving the Miami Dolphins after reports of him being bullied by teammates, notably Richie Incognito. Anything he does will come under scrutiny as everyone watches everything he says and does, and he put his foot in his mouth.
During Game One of the NBA Finals, the air conditioning unit at the AT&T Center went out making it incredibly hot inside for the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat. Superstar LeBron James left the game a couple of times with severe cramping because of the Heat as the Spurs pulled away down the stretch.
Guess who was ready to join the trolls on Twitter and call out LeBron James? That is right, Martin himself who was fed up with teammates calling out his manliness, and in all fairness amongst other horrible and atrocious things directed at him.

Had any other athlete made these comment sit probably would’ve flown under the radar, but given Martin and his history it is an interesting tweet. After being fed up with what he dealt with it shows how easily anyone can get caught into cyber-bullying.
The tweet was deleted by Martin, who didn’t offer any apology on social media.
