If you are addicted to your phone like most people are these days, you are most likely switching between social media platforms, looking for the latest story or entertainment. It is not a secret that Twitter is home to some of the wildest and craziest opinions on the internet. You’ll often find yourself thinking, “this is the worst tweet ever.” You’re not far from the truth, there are some crazy people on the bird app, and Twitter user Mike Benner thought so too! Mike had an awesome idea to host an online tournament for the worst tweets ever! This was a thread of different crazy tweets against each other and a poll set up for a public vote; the tweet with the highest votes would then move up to the next challenge. The top worst tweet would win the challenge. Before you ask, no, there was no prize to be won, but it was fun at least. Hopefully, we’ll get another tournament soon because Twitter is flooded with crazy tweets these days. This piece is dedicated to bringing you the worst of them all! Yes, I’ve gathered the bad, the crazy, and the outright shocking! I present to you the worst tweets ever!
When NFL Players Are Expected to Fight Terrorists
September 9, 2001, is a day that can never be forgotten in US history. On this day, 19 terrorists associated with the Islamic extremist group, Al-Qaeda, hijacked four planes and hit three significant US sites, resulting in nearly 3,000 deaths. Twenty-three policemen responded to the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center and were killed.
This is one of the worst tweets ever because it is so insensitive considering the loss suffered by service members. How would anyone expect NFL members who are in no way trained or armed to handle such occurrences to do anything about a terrorist attack? This crazy comment came after the NFL 9/11 memorial anniversary, which was held in September of 2021.
