  1. Never mind them m8, their SCUM but be careful they could be Mad scum and thats the worset kind

  2. Think that the people writing this abuse ain’t nothing more than vile and cowards , the police should get involved !

  3. To paraphrase a greetings card I saw the other day “They gave an infinite number of monkeys an infinite number of typewriters… It’s called the internet”.

    There will always be bigots declaring death threats on internet messageboards as long as there’s an internet. 99.999% of them are all mouth and no trousers.
    I doubt Collins will be loosing much sleep over their whackjob Rambo fantasies.

  4. I call this an opportunity to round up the dangerous, before violence strikes.

    All twitter messages can be traced – lets start arresting people. Bet them locked up before they commit actual acts of violence.

    Nothing brings out the worst in people like anonymous web accounts…..

    (he says, typing into an anonymous web account….)

    1. I think the best example of that is YouTube.

    Only cowardly hetero bullies hide behind social media to say the most vile, abhorrent things. I dare any of them to reveal their faces to the world. Of course, they won’t will they? Jason Collins is more man then they’ll ever be.
