Doc Rivers Was Caught Liking X-Rated Tweets, Fans Immediately Roasted Him: "Horny On Main??"

The advent of social media has pulled the many figures that are popular in the NBA into close interaction with the fans. Often, it helps fans understand the perspective of their players and coaches straight from their mouths. Other times, it's a bit more difficult, and it can lead to players roasting fans, something Kevin Durant is arguably the best at. 

But while a lot of today's players have grown up with technology, the same cannot be said for the coaches. A lot of NBA head coaches and executives are public figures themselves, which means they have to be a little savvy about the apps they use. Unfortunately for Doc Rivers, his account was the site of a social faux pas that will be hard to live down for a while.


Doc Rivers Was Caught Liking Pornographic Tweets And Got Roasted For It

As a lot of people are aware, when one has a Twitter account, the likes on said account are visible to all those that follow it. So if a player or a coach likes something, any inquisitive fan can find out what they're looking at. And in the case of Rivers, a discovery was made recently showing that his account's likes included a lot of pornography. 

There was a lot of backlash from fans once this discovery was made, with a number of them mercilessly roasting him on Twitter as well as on Reddit

"Horny on main??"

"Need to learn how to make burner accounts from KD."

"Someone gotta tell him about bookmarks."

"This is so embarrassing, man. Get it together, Doc."

"Who's he gonna throw under the bus this time?"

"I won't judge. People are free to like whatever they like as long as it involves consenting adults. But Doc, take a page out of KD's book and get an alt account."

"Nobody even remotely famous should handle their own social media accounts."

"It's okay, he'll blow another massive playoff lead and we'll forget all about it."

"How is this only the 3rd most embarrassing moment of Doc's career."

"That's it man, get this dude out of Philly."

"Wow, so winning a ring don't make you any less horny, huh?"

"He's a man, He's a man's man, He's a man's man man."

Some reports came out subsequently suggesting that Rivers had his account hacked, but that was always likely to be the story regardless of the truth. This isn't the first time this offseason Doc has had to refute some allegations either

"Confirmed through a source that Doc Rivers’ Twitter account was compromised and the team was working overnight to address it. All of the content has since been unliked and Rivers has full access to his account again."

Whether his account was hacked or not, some simply won't let Doc live this one down. This entire episode is a huge lesson in social media for a lot of NBA athletes and one they would do well to heed. Public image matters, after all, and this is the sort of thing that the internet just doesn't forget.
