Brandon Phillips rips fan who calls him out for bad throw on Twitter
Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips loves Twitter. Last year, he even credited the social media site with helping him as a player. As we all know, you can’t appreciate Twitter without dealing with a few trolls.
Most athletes who succeed on Twitter manage to ignore all of the criticism that comes their way. Fans who harass popular players and call them four-letter words are just looking for a retweet or a response, so it’s usually best to ignore them altogether. However, Phillips engages those people from time to time. On Tuesday night, he went hard at one of his haters.

That’ll shut him up. Actually, it will probably make him louder, but that’s a pretty strong comeback from Phillips. The veteran infielder also answered a question about losing in hilarious fashion last season, so we were not surprised to see him fire back. But the girlfriend on the lap call out? That’s next level-type stuff.
