Upsets happen in all sports, especially famous in the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Basketball Tournaments, but one fan went a little too far after Ohio State’s upset loss to Oral Roberts University.
On Twitter, Ohio State Buckeyes forward EJ Liddell shows off two screenshots that he received with a couple hateful and racist DMs after the loss last night.
“Honestly, what did I do to deserve this? I’m human,” Liddell said in one of the tweets.
Yeah even after a big-time loss that OSU took last night, none of the players deserve the hate or the negative treatment that they get.
University police and athletics program are aware of Liddell’s situation and they assisted on filing a police report with the player. Buckeyes coach Chris Holtmann has issued a statement regarding those DMs.
Yikes man, just yikes.
