Chris long likes mixing it up on Twitter, and this tweet really got people upset. His intention was to definitely mix things up, but he had no idea people would react like they did. With Game 7 of the NBA Western Conference finals between the Golden State Warriors and Houston Rockets, and Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Vegas Golden Knights and Washington Capitals, he tweeted this out.
“It actually was too many. I’m like, cringing now,” Long said of the number of people he fooled.
His post even got picked up by conservative news outlet The Daily Caller, which dubbed it “one of the dumbest tweets you’ll ever see about hockey.”
“The problem is, I’m going to be like walking through Canada at some point and just get jumped,” Long joked at his locker following Tuesday’s practice. “And I’m going to be laying on the ground and I’m going to be like, ‘It was a joke.'”
Great stuff, people are way too sensitive, and way too easy to dupe. Also why do people take Twitter so seriously, I mean, it’s called Twitter. What does that even mean, really?!?
