It clearly is not easy being Mark Sanchez.

We all know that most of the fan base wants Mark Sanchez on the bench, and/or off the team. That’s fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion. But Mark should not have to go through the assaults he has received via Twitter.

Mark received a couple of ill wishes via Twitter, and he responded. Take a look:

Thanks for your support man! #classy RT @YOUNGSTOWN4LI4E .@Mark_Sanchez F*** YOU HOPE YOU TEAR YOUR ACL ON FRIDAY

Hey thanks for ur support #oppositeday RT @FeenDaddy@Mark_Sanchez: Cup o’ joe” I hope there’s cyanide in that

How many ways, in how many languages can I say how disgusting this is? Not enough ways. To wish him to get hurt, and even die? Are you kidding?

I get embarrassed when I read things like this. Kudos to Mark for simple, quick response. People that send tweets like that are the people who give our fan base a bad name. I know that isn’t a majority.

But that doesn’t make it any less vile.
