Hit Piece Bashes Heisman Winner For Tweets When He Was 14. Response is Brutal.

We now live in a day and age where anything you say, can and will be used against you in the court of public opinion. Especially if it’s something you posted on social media.

Take comedian Kevin Hart for example. Hart was tapped to host the Oscars, but then some folks dug up some jokes he cracked about homosexuality and then “poof!” The hosting gig went up in smoke. Gone. Erased. A victim of Thanos’ infinity gauntlet snap.

The latest target of digital witch hunting is Heisman winner, Kyle Murray, the stellar quarterback from Oklahoma. A new hit piece by blogger Scott Gleeson smashes on Murray over some tweets he made when he was 14-years-old.

Let’s just say the response from the public has not been favorable to Gleeson.

Gleeson wrote an article shaming Murray immediately after he won college football’s top individual award, over some tweets that he wrote when he was as young as 14-years-old.

“But the Oklahoma quarterback’s memorable night also helped resurface social media’s memory of several homophobic tweets more than six years old,” Gleeson wrote. “When Murray was 15 years old, he tweeted at his friends (via his since-verified Twitter account) using an anti-gay slur to defame them.”

Gleeson later updated his piece to include Murray’s apology, claiming that the star quarterback “took accountability” after Gleeson’s hit piece on him.

The backlash to Gleeson’s absurd piece exploded on Sunday morning, with tens of thousands of people expressing outrage over the fact that this blogger decided to attack a young man during one of the greatest moments of his life over comments he made years prior when he was 14. On the initial tweet from USA Today alone, more than 6,900 people commented on it with nearly all the comments disapproving of the article.

Here are some of the top responses to Gleeson’s article that got the most traction on social media:

And that’s just the beginning. There are an astounding number of individuals who are — rightly — ticked off about the treatment that Murray has received at the hands of LGBTQ activists — look at that ridiculous acronym. Seems like it grows by a new letter every week — who are voicing their support for the budding young quarterback.

The left actually combs through folks’ Twitter feeds looking for something they can start trouble with and then publishes the junk all over the place whenever that person hits the spotlight, just so they can milk some extra “woke” points from the left.

How pathetic and desperate does that look? Unbelievable.
