Rick Pitino Social Media

Louisville head coach Rick Pitino had some not so nice words for nearly one-in-four people in the world. The 61-year-old was critical of social media users during a press conference on Monday.

“I think anybody in sports who reads social media is not all there. To me, it’s the great class of underachievers who live on the internet and social media. I think it’s people who waste their time, and underachieve because they’re not paying attention to what they should be.”

Pitino’s bash on Facebook/Twitter/Social media users  has not gone over well for many Twitter users.

Update: Pitino’s remarks were taken out of context. Read up on it here.
