You’ve been sitting around the house, eating greasy pizza, watching the NFL Network and avoiding your annoying girlfriend or wife. You haven’t moved off the couch in 48 hours and your phone died, rendering your Twitter account worthless.

Manti Te’o vs. His Stupid Beyoncé Super Bowl Tweet
Fight Combatants: Manti Te’o goes to war with Twitter villains
Fight Details: You can see the tweet. Manti should know that he can’t use CAPS and drop a “KILLED THAT” in the same tweet without taking heat from his haters. One thing led to another and the heat became so much that Manti deleted his account, claiming he needed to focus on the NFL draft.
Fight Scorecard: Twitter villains in like an 8 round TKO. It took time for this moron to go away, but the public finally won the war.

That led to this >
