In case you weren’t watching, Louisville Cardinals sophomore guard Kevin Ware suffered a pretty awful injury when he broke his leg during yesterday’s win over the Duke Blue Devils. In any game, Ware’s broken leg would have caused basketball fans to cringe, his teammates to reportedly faint and vomit and his coach to turn white in the face, but since this was the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament, it seemed like Ware’s injury was magnified x10000000.
A few things happened in the aftermath of the injury. Some fans watched in horror, as some fans reportedly started a “Let’s go Duke” chant. Some of our peers declared that they wouldn’t post videos or GIFs of the injury out of respect, while others jumped right on it. One sports writer used Ware’s injury to milk a few last drops of traffic out of an old article, while others made fun of him. And some a-holes started Kevin Ware parody Twitter accounts, while other people were just normal human beings and not sociopathic douchebags.
So today I make this plea to Twitter – stop letting bullsh*t accounts like @KevinWare_5 happen.
UPDATE: Twitter suspended the account. Swift mutha-f*ckin justice, With Leather style.
