Being a student athlete in today’s world can be one of the hardest tasks with the evolution of social media. Once you’re done with a game, you can’t go on your phone, even when you win. There’s always a few people in a fan base that won’t hold back, not understanding the concept that there’s another human on the other side of the screen. Over the weekend, WVU guard Kedrian “Keddy” Johnson had enough, tweeting at some of the fan base after the Texas Tech game.

Johnson finished with four points, six rebounds and two steals in 21 minutes of play against the Red Raiders. The senior guard tweeted this on Saturday night.

After Johnson tweeted, teammate Jalen Bridges replied, agreeing that the team are the only supporters they have.

WVU fans had good and bad replies to these tweets. Some still showed their support, while others put Johnson and Bridges down for tweeting this, calling them “soft” or a “disgrace to the state.” On Sunday, Johnson tweeted again, going into more detail in what he was trying to say.

By late Sunday night, Johnson had tweeted both tweets. Johnson and Bridges are looking to end the program’s longest losing streak (7) since 2013, when they host Iowa State in the WVU Coliseum on Tuesday night.
