Indiana took down Kentucky this past Saturday, in a matchup that included two of the best point guards in the country in Tyler Ulis and Yogi Ferrell. Unfortunately, it looks like a family member of one of the two star players went a bit too far rubbing it in after the contest.

Ferrell's mother, Lydia, appears to have taken to Twitter after the game to post a photo of Ulis giving double birds to fans after UK's loss to Auburn earlier this year. In the post, she both implies that Ulis has no class and takes a shot at him for his height - 5-foot-9. There's just one problem.

Ulis never gave double birds to anyone after the Auburn game. The photo is fake. Here's video to prove it.

To be fair, Ferrell's mother may have seen the photo elsewhere and assumed it was real. We won't speculate that she created it herself.

Still, it isn't a great look. Sometimes, it's better to let your - err, your son's play - do the talking.
