Gordon Hayward's wife responded to upset Utah Jazz fans on social media.
Gordon Hayward's decision to sign as a free agent with the Boston Celtics is being celebrated in Beantown and lamented in Utah.
At least a few disgruntled Jazz fans burned Hayward's jersey, while others expressed their anger and sadness on social media.
Apparently, Hayward's wife Robyn saw some of the nastiness, and she addressed it in an Instagram post yesterday.
You can see the post below. Here is the full text of the caption she used.
I'm excited to go on this adventure with this man! It's bittersweet leaving where we've called home and grown our family, but I'm excited to see where this path takes us! We are so grateful for everything Utah has done for us! ❤️ Also, as for all the mean comments and threats. Don't forget athletes are humans too. Treat others how you would like to be treated. It would never cross my mind to speak so negatively and so full of hate about oneself or their family.
There are always going to be people saying nasty things on social media, but this is a good reminder that when you do, you're talking about real people who see and react to your nastiness.
