Richard Sherman Responds to Twitter Troll with the Greatest Comeback Possible


Richard Sherman is good at a lot of things: playing cornerback, yelling, and most importantly, out-trolling the rest of the internet. His latest triumph came over a particularly nasty piece of vitriol directed at him.

The tweets, which were later deleted by the user, read, in order:

Everyone who heard you dissing Manning before knows you don’t mean a damn word of this, you pathetic, disingenuous punk.

Take your phony praise and shove it up your drugged out ass, you worthless scumbag.

Seattle beat Denver, but you contributed nothing and got carted off with an injury. Karma’s a NASTY bitch, needle Dick! :P

Fortunately Sherman, the always clever Stanford graduate had an infallible retort to the ad hominem attacks:

That is truly an All-Pro level retort, Sherman didn’t even need any words. Sherman’s victory was so thorough that his foe seems to have completely quit Twitter.


His foe was probably afraid that the media which loves to harass and dig up dirt, would "out" who he was - I doubt the response terrified him into quitting social media.  /eye-roll


The Trophy speaks for itself and often quiets all HATERS!!!! #LOB #12 #48


That being said, the remarks were definitely vicious and unnecessary.  People get WAY too worked up over sports crap (I'm guilty of it too, from time to time).  Just dumb.
