Le'Veon Bell Kills Racist Tweet With Kindness

Steelers running back takes high road, let's haters show their true colors.

Published November 10, 2015

Fans can be cruel, ignorant and downright racist.

Just over a week since suffering a season-ending torn right MCL, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell took to his Twitter account Monday night to show how some of his 234,000 followers are just flat out bad people.

Yet, Bell didn't stoop to their level. He opted to kill them with kindness, re-tweeting the hateful messages for all to see.

First, Bell re-tweeted the rather pleasant way he responded to a follower who was happy that he tore his MCL.

If that wasn't vile enough, the next follower actually called Bell the N-word and also expressed joy that the 23-year-old NFL star was injured.

Again, despite the hate, Bell took the high road, killing him with kindness.

In not stooping to their level, Bell not only showed how classy he could be, but he allowed these followers to expose their true, hateful colors.

Bell had surgery on his torn MCL and is expected back next season.
