Mats Hummels has been on the receiving end of all sorts of vile messages on social media from Borussia Dortmund “fans” over the last few months since his move to Bayern Munich was announced. Hummels, for his part, has handled it all with class, refusing to drop to the level of these people.
On Saturday, Hummels invited people to ask him questions via Twitter in a Q&A. As expected in these things, the majority of the questions were from fans actually wanting to know things about one of their favorite players.
Then, one Dortmund fan decided that it was his opportunity to troll.
@matshummels on a scale of 1-10 how much of a snake are you?— Ahmed (@ahmednufc7) July 31, 2016
Hummels, one can imagine, has been thinking of ways to deal with this situation. These messages no doubt bother him, as he’s talked about previously. So, you can imagine that joy he felt when he tweeted this at the Dortmund fan.
Depends...what is 1 and what is 10? Maybe earthworm (1) to Python (10) ? https://t.co/GnxY2axYDu— Mats Hummels (@matshummels) July 31, 2016
The lesson to be learned here is if you come at Mats on Twitter, you better not miss.
