New York Jets safety Jamal Adams and Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette engage in a classic LSU Twitter brawl.

Where’s Michael Buffer when the world needs him? The 75-year-old legendary ring announcer is missing a good-old-fashioned Twitter brawl.

His voice is sincerely needed.

New York Jets strong safety Jamal Adams and Jacksonville Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette are getting after it and LSU is taking center stage.

The LSU alumni, both of whom played at LSU from 2014 through 2016, are showcasing no love lost. It all started when Adams subtweeted a Fournette tweet related to the Pro Bowl.


“Bruh we get it… Stop being thirsty!,” Adams said in response.

Let’s get ready to rumble!

Interestingly enough, Adams has promoted his Pro Bowl agenda a time or two in the past. Admittedly, due to the deletion of the tweet, nobody’s exactly positive as to the exact verbiage used by Fournette (save for a screenshot roaming the internet somewhere).

But however anybody wants to gauge Adams’s response, it’s nothing compared to the direction Fournette took the conversation.

The Jags back elevated things quickly:

Of course, Adams responded, going straight for the jugular:

Making matters worse for Jamal, Fournette found the aforementioned “Lance” of the “Lance Party,” where Fournette accused the safety of hiding during a fight. The legendary Lance weighed in to deliver a straight right to the Jets’ safety:

Fournette then decided to show love for his LSU brother:

It didn’t last too long:

Adams hasn’t responded to his second tweet that accused Fournette of dogging it his last year at LSU. It’s a smart move. Unfortunately, he should have stayed away completely.

Boys and girls, social media is trash. Silly rabbit, Twitter is for kids.

The negatives severely outweigh any positives social media brings to this world. For athletes, the best advice is to stay far, far away.

Meanwhile, Michael Buffer is still missing. Oh yeah, that’s right; the savvy ring announcer understands this isn’t a real fight. It’s a silly social media bickering session that forces everybody to take three steps back.
