Twitter user got confused last week after Thursday’s football game between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Fans were upset after players Myles Garrett and Mason Rudolph got in a fight that resulted in players being suspended and fined. Fans had a lot to say on Twitter after Garrett ripped off Rudolph’s helmet and hit him with it. Only problem, they confused Garrett the NFL player with Myles Garrett, a sports reporter for WSBT in South Bend, Ind.
One fan wrote, “@MylesGarrettTV Should be banned for life playing football and locked up for assault. Hope the Steelers press charges.”
Garrett, the reporter, had a little fun with it and tweeted: “I’d like to formally apologize to @Rudolph2Mason for my actions last night. Inexcusable. And I’m glad I’ve been called out for it.”
