Donte DiVincenzo deletes Twitter account after old tweets go viral
Donte DiVincenzo probably should have cleaned up his Twitter account before he dropped 31 points in Monday night’s national championship game and became an overnight sensation, but you know what they say — better late than never.
At some point on Tuesday, DiVincenzo deactivated his Twitter account. The decision came after a vulgar tweet from 2011 went viral following the sophomore’s heroic performance.
“To my dad I’m a p—y now?” the tweet read. “Cuz I don’t want to play f—ing soccer?”
There were other (more vulgar) tweets too, but they were sent when DiVincenzo was about 14 or 15 years old. While he’ll probably end up issuing an apology, it really isn’t necessary. Plus, DiVincenzo’s parents were at Monday night’s game against Michigan and looked plenty proud of their son and the sport he has chosen.
DiVincenzo isn’t the first college player to get caught with some embarrassing old tweets, and he won’t be the last. He should, however, be a reminder to others that you never know when you’re going to become a household name.
