University of New Mexico senior guard Hugh Greenwood got to see the ugly side of social media before he and his Lobo teammates took the court against UNLV Wednesday night. In an attempt to perhaps rattle Greenwood a twitter troll tweeted an ugly comment about Greenwood’s mother who is battling cancer . The tweet only fueled Greenwood’s basketball fire as he knocked down six three point shots and scored 22 points in a 71 to 69 Lobos victory. It is truly sad that someone would make fun of a person battling cancer. Who would do such a thing? Who is starving for attention no matter what kind or at what cost. The culprit is not a person who needs our insults but, our help. On the twitter page of this person was tweet after tweet of poisonous language. To operate in such a manner must be deep misery. This is a person who needs to have his life wounds loved away. Whoever that person is, who was so starved for attention that they resorted to making fun of cancer, we have all heard you. While we are disgusted, we also feel bad for you.
