Another year coming to a close means a new batch of athletes and sports organizations who probably shouldn’t have pressed send on a social media post.
But ironically this year, the most dominant figure in sports social media wasn’t an athlete. It was President Trump. From rants about the Take a Knee movement and teams refusing to go to the White House to bashing LaVar Ball for not being grateful, the leader of the United States has been at the center of attention ever since he took office.
With that being said, there were still plenty of athletes and teams who took the spotlight for their embarrassing antics online. We found out that the 2017 NBA Finals MVP cares what every fan thinks about him. We also found out that the man we call “Porzingod” is actually human after he was repeatedly denied by an Instagram model.
Once a social media post is shared, there is no turning back. The honorees on this year’s list would’ve benefited from the lack of a screenshot option but, luckily for us, that’s not that case. Enjoy our third annual edition of the most embarrassing sports social media fails of 2017.
