Star running back for the New York Giants, Brandon Jacobs, was recently sent a death threat via Twitter, and he was not happy.

Jacobs was so put off that he contacted NFL security and outed the Twitter account that had sent the threats.

Andre Rayner, the owner of the account that sent tweets like:

“On life Brandon if you don’t rush for 50 yards and 2 touchdowns tonight its over for you and yo family.”

“Fulfill my orders stated in the previous tweet or thats yo life bruh and Im not playing.”

That’s some serious stuff to be writing on such a widely used online media tool.

Jacobs was later quoted as responding to another Twitter hater: “F**k you and your fantasy team.. This is my real life..” All of this is because some random fan wanted Jacobs to perform well so his fantasy team’s stats would do well.

People do not not understand how much damage they can actually cause with even the smallest of messages these days. Twitter, like other social media outlets, demand a certain degree of responsibility, especially with the number of fans who harass players increasing by the day.
