Patriot fans send rude tweets to Torrey Smith about brothers death


Fans in the New England region have been getting a bad reputation for their antics following their teams losses. Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith became the latest target following his teams win over the Patriots in the AFC championship game.

Smith’s younger brother Tevin died in a motorcycle accident early in the season. Some Patriot fans took this as ammunition to attack the Ravens wideout on twitter.

Smith sent out the following tweet on Tuesday morning.

Played a lot of games since my brothers death and I never received as many rude tweets after a win than Sunday…yet NE fans cry about class

It is unfortunate that Smith was attacked over his brothers death and showcases one of the problems with social media. Smith and the Ravens will play against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. Currently Las Vegas lists the Ravens as a 4 point underdog.
