UNC Fan Trashes Duke On Facebook, Former Blue Devil Dahntay Jones Fires Back

Beware, social media users. If you publicly make disparaging remarks about athletes, they might actually respond.

A North Carolina fan named April Hobson posted a long message to her Facebook page Tuesday night, simultaneously praising her favorite program and trashing its rival - Duke. In the note, Hobson takes shots at a few players, including Grayson Allen, Gerald Henderson and Dahntay Jones.

Well, Jones somehow found the post and actually responded. Jones, who played for the Blue Devils from 2001 to 2003, defended himself, criticized Roy Williams and told the UNC fan to stop blaming the referees for her team's loss to Villanova Monday night. It's a strong comeback. The post is still live here, but a Twitter user named E-DUB posted screenshots to make it easier to read. Check it out:

The rivalry between UNC and Duke, clearly, is alive and well.
