Comment on Personal social media use by Luke

Do you ever think athletes, or other celebrities for that matter, are criticized too much over what they post online? I feel like ESPN, Buzzfeed, Barstool, Deadspin, and every other sports blog is constantly ready to pick apart every single thing an athlete tweets about and it seems like they deserve the same amount of benefit of the doubt as anyone else. It feels to me like we often hold more distain for a misinterpreted tweet than a flagrant foul or brutal penalty, which has never made a whole lot of sense to me. We understand that they are human on the field (or at least most sports fans do) yet we forget that online.
