Stay classy New England Patriots fans.
It takes all kinds of people in this world and apparently new Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount has lost a fan after moving on from the Patriots during the offseason.
As you can see by Blount’s tweet below, there is at least one ignorant Patriots fan out there. (CLICK THE ATTACHED LINK BUT BE READY FOR NSFW LANGUAGE)
Blount’s response to the racist remark:
“This makes no sense to me. Like why waste your time writing this to me bro? Crazy! Ignorance at it’s fullest! Smh”

Every team unfortunately has members of their fan base that act like this and it’s becoming more visible these days thanks to social media.
Players moving on from one team to another is all part of the sports business and in the case of Blount, he admitted after signing with the Steelers that he was surprised that the Patriots let him get away in free agency.
“I didn’t think they were going to let me go,” said Blount in an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio back in April. “At the end of the day, though, there is a business of this whole thing and the business part is that they couldn’t meet the requirements of a contract deal with me, so we had to part ways.”
