Kyle Williams Death Threats
January 24, 2012 by staff
Kyle Williams Death Threats, Kyle Williams is ignoring the barrage of hateful comments, including death threats, he has received via social media in the aftermath of his fumbled punt that led to San Francisco’ loss Sunday night to the New York Giants in the NFC title game. Instantly, he was made a villain on the Internet, with vile and threatening comments being posted.
“I really didn’t pay attention to Twitter,” he said Monday. “All the feedback I needed was family and friends, the guys in the locker room.”
Kicker David Akers took to Twitter asking people to stop with the harsh remarks.
“I’m irritated with the way people are treating him, absolutely,” Akers said. “I think it’s ridiculous. You know, get a grip on what life’s about. … Mistakes happen. We all make mistakes.”
Some of the social media users expressed hope Williams and his family would die. Williams’ father, Chicago White Sox general manager Ken Williams, planned to address the matter with NFL security and believes his own experience in handling death threats over the years will reassure his son.
“Kyle has seen this, and it’s been talked about in our home prior to this,” Ken Williams said. “Emotionally, I have to walk him through it because it does send a little bit of a shock through your system. He understands this is part of the gig. Nobody likes it but we all signed up for it. You can’t sign up for all the good things associated with pro sports and not understand it comes with some less than desirable things, too.
“There are two ways people handle adversity; they use it to fuel themselves to become better and stronger or they use it to cripple themselves and make excuses for everything bad that happens from that day forward. The Williams men have not been taught that way.”
Big ratings â€¢ New York’s 20-17 win for the NFC title on Fox was seen in 30.6 percent of homes in the nation’s 56 largest markets, The Nielsen Co. said Monday. It drew 57.6 million viewers, trailing only San Francisco’s win over Dallas in 1982, (68.7 million) and New Orleans’ overtime victory over Minnesota in 2010 (57.9 million) among conference title games in the last three decades.
