Over the last year or two, Mia has exposed a number of athletes for trying to kick game to her online, including NFL safety Duke Williams, Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly, and—really, dude?—Chad Kelly again. And even though Joel Embiid proved that you can interact with Mia on social media without making a total ass of yourself, why risk it? More often than not, she’s going to make an example out of you if you get out of line when you DM her.
On Friday afternoon, Mia made a radio appearance on ESPN’s Russillo & Kanell—the show’s co-host Danny Kanell is a former Florida State QB and Mia is, as you might know, a huge FSU fan—and she was asked, amongst other things, about her DMs. She said that it’s "hard to deal with" some of the stuff that gets sent her way, and she talked about how she doesn’t regret putting Kelly in particular in his place when he tried to slide into her DMs on two separate occasions.
"Absolutely not. His [nickname] is Swag Kelly," she said. "That should be enough to ask for a public humiliation. I don’t feel bad about it because he reactivated his Twitter and re-slid in my DMs like he didn’t learn anything the first time."
She also said that while she only gets DMs from people that she follows, which cuts down on the amount of BS that comes her way, she still has to put people in their place from time to time.
"I can only be hit up from people I follow," she said. "So if I do get hit up, it’s usually for a good reason. But if they come at me sideways, they’re going to learn the hard way not to."
And as if all of that wasn’t enough to deter you from DMing her, Mia also said that there aren’t many people who have been successful when sliding into her DMs. In fact, she said only one person has ever cracked the code and done it.
"I’ve only actually ever responded to one DM positively and that was very recently," she said without identifying the lucky guy, "and now I’m kind of seeing him, I guess."
We realize that might give some of you out there hope. After all, if it worked for one guy, maybe it will work for you, right?
But do you know how many DMs Mia gets? We’d guess…a lot. And we’d also guess that, 99.99999999 percent of the time, she’s either going to clown you or ignore you if you DM her. So don’t even bother.
