After Ben Roethlisberger’s ill-fated attempt to fake spike the ball at the end of the Steelers game versus the Patriots resulted in a crushing interception, fans of the team decided to take out their frustration and with a brutal attack on Roethlisberger via Twitter.
One problem though. The Steelers fans actually attacked some random guy on Twitter and not the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback. Whoops! (Perhaps they still weren’t thinking clearly after the referees took away their game-winning touchdown with the “it’s a catch, but not really” rule.)
Here’s the inexplicable play by Roethlisberger that sealed the game for the Patriots on Sunday.
And here’s Roethlisberger trying to make the inexplicable explicable.
Regardless of whose fault the fake spike play was, Steelers fans were pissed.
Ummm, you got the wrong guy, folks…
And those weren’t even the worst tweets at poor Ben Rothenberg. He got accused of being a sexual predator even before Big Ben threw his pick.
Luckily for him, not everyone can’t tell the difference between Rothenberg and Roethlisberger.
And one even apologized…
At least Rothenberg isn’t alone in dealing with cases of mistaken identity. Jon Jones also knows exactly how Ben feels.
