In the world of social media, anyone can be contacted. It’s sadly usual to see “fans” go after their own players after games, no matter their age and situation. But rarely do you hear about people going after collegiate players’ girlfriends after a game. Following West Virginia’s loss to Kansas State on Monday night, Jalen Bridges took to Twitter his displeasure about people direct messaging his girlfriend about his performance.

Bridges’ girlfriend, Maddie Cherry, received direct messages from the West Virginia fanbase. The extent to the messages have not been leaked.

Bridges, a sophomore out of Fairmont, finished with nine points on 3-of-8 shooting from the field on Monday night. Bridges missed a crucial three-point shot that could’ve made it a one-point game with a minute remaining. Bridges finished with 10 rebounds on the night as well.

Unfortunately it has to be said, don’t go after the student athletes or any of their loved ones after a game on social media.
