As Yo Gotti once said, it goes down in the DM.
Major League Baseball player Alex Bregman just learned this the hard way.
Bregman deleted his Twitter account after reacting, ahem, strongly to criticism from a fan. Here’s what happened.
Bregman slid into the fan’s DMs (which are direct messages, for all you olds), then got savagely owned by said fan, then melted down completely by writing that “I forgot I shouldnt give flees [sic] on the nutsack of society the time of day.”
The fan then posted screenshots of the private exchange publicly on Twitter. Soon enough, Bregman’s account had vanished.
Sports are fun! 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
Here’s the entire exchange.
Bregman is a third baseman for the Houston Astros hitting .256 this year.
A Dallas ABC affiliate looked back through previous tweets by “Allen H,” finding that he’d tweeted multiple times opining that the Astros should trade Bregman but not tagged him in any of those tweets.
Pretty much no matter what was said, though, the lesson for athletes here is the same as it’s been so many times before: angrily storming a fan’s DMs will not end well.
That bit about “flees [sic] on the nutsack of society” is good for a few laughs, though.
