Mark Sanchez Received Death Threats Via Twitter

A Jets fan went way over the line after Sunday’s game by sending quarterback Mark Sanchez death threats via Twitter.

The sender of the Tweets wrote in direct messages to USA Today Sports that there will be “bullets everywhere” if Sanchez shows up to practice on Wednesday, and included Sanchez’s Twitter handle in the message, making sure the quarterback would see the warning. The sender went on to write that Sanchez “better have armed security” at the facility on Wednesday.

A spokesman with the NFL said the league is in contact with the Jets about the situation, but wouldn’t confirm what procedures were put into place as a result of the messages, according to Mike Garofolo of USA Today Sports:

“DON’T COME TO PRACTICE WEDNESDAY I PROMISE YOU BULLETS EVERYWHERE….SANCHEZ BETTER HAVE ARMED SECURITY WEDNESDAY AT PRACTICE!! YOU THINK IMMA SIT HERE & WATCH THIS (expletive)?? TUHHH”

 

The fan also suggested he couldn’t engage in intimate acts with his girlfriend because he was too upset by Sanchez’s performance.

The fan later backed off those comments, saying he’s just a die-hard Jets fan:

“I do not want to harm Sanchez or do intend to. I’m just a Die hard Jets fan that was mad & got carried away.”
