WARNING: Offensive language

Cole Stoudt’s performance in the Georgia Tech game earned him dozens, if not hundreds of angry Tweets defaming his name. Example:Screen Shot 2014-11-15 at 2.28.12 PMAs the Clemson football legacy grows, it seems that the concept of the tried and true “Clemson family” falls to the side and is replaced by outright judgement and fury when the team loses. Some students, after a losing game, will post something to the effect of, “I support my Tigers no matter what”, or at least watered-down anger, but the George Tech game destroyed that concept it seems.

Although Cole has a Twitter account, he hasn’t used it since August. He has a very normal Twitter account. He talks about pranking his teammates, Vineing, and eating great cheesecake. It is an uncomfortable comparison to the hate he receives. In fact, students and Clemson fans sent so many hate Tweets that Cole Stoudt is now trending on Twitter. I have collected some of the Tweets in an attempt to show the extent of hate for Cole Stoudt:
