Everyone stop what you’re doing. Stop right now. Drop everything. You’re about to witness social media destruction. You’re about to witness perhaps the greatest “drop the mic” moment I’ve ever seen from an athlete on Twitter.
This was five years in the making. Here’s Demarcus Cousins on Instagram this morning.
So here are the main characters in this story.
Demarcus “Boogie” Cousins: A 24-year-old center who plays for the Sacramento Kings. At the time, Cousins was a 19-year-old freshman for Kentucky. The tweet was reportedly sent out during a game against Vanderbilt (1-30-10) when “Boogie” went for 21 points and 10 rebounds. He was a man among boys that day. He was also, kind of a hot-head.
Clay Travis: A journalist and personality for Fox Sports who owns the website “Outkick the Coverage.” Travis graduated law school from Vanderbilt in 2004, so the tweet was likely in reference to the game where Boogie went off. Travis is well-known in the media as someone who ruffles feathers.
This probably goes without saying but no, Demarcus Cousins has not been arrested in the last five years. In fact, a quick search reveals he’s never been in trouble with the law. This, my friends, is how you deal someone a big glass of “shut the f*ck up.”
