“The death threats, lies being told about my husband, and blatant DISRESPECT never ceases to amaze me,” she said in the post. “For the record – I pray those of you who even think those thoughts, let alone type them out.”

Today the Browns quarterback talked about the threats. He told reporters that the alleged comments did not rise to the level of team security or police becoming involved.

He basically downplayed the “keyboard warriors” who make “empty threats.”

Twitter reacted to Baker’s comments:

Social Media has created an entirely new type of fan, one who derives pleasure from trolling athletes and their loved ones.

Pretty disturbing stuff.
