If you like to see people get what’s coming to them, you’ll be happy with this recent update.
Fox Sports Commentator Edward Egros recently tweeted his feelings about figure skating, and received a response of such fire that I’m surprised he wasn’t rushed to the burn ward. His comment was that although he has great respect for figure skaters, figure skating in and of itself is not a sport. Shots fired.
THANK YOU! I have the utmost respect for figure skaters, only a few people in the universe can do it and they deserve my praise.
But it’s not a sport. https://t.co/SGw3KwGr7n

Without being incredibly aggressive, 17 year old figure skater Vincent Zhou tweeted him back. He simply told Egros that if he doesn’t think figure skating is a sport, he should just stick to his job.
Your job is to be a sports reporter. Figure skating is not a sport to you. Stick to reporting on "real sports", do your job, and we'll do ours. https://t.co/y5IHypOC8h

You could almost hear the cheers of people as they ‘liked’ his tweet, and sent out their praise to him along with their roasts of Egros, including Zhou’s teammate, Chris Knierim.
You tell him Vincent!! pic.twitter.com/BWSm9tFCQ0

Looks like the Fox Commentator is on thin ice.
