If you’re still not convinced that online words have real-life consequences, let this be another example.
Yesterday, Steph Curry’s sister Sydell tweeted that she was on her way to watch her brother and the Warriors play game 3 of the NBA Finals against Lebron James and the Cavaliers.
A Twitter user named ‘@SoftCaramelKiss’ (aka Moe) responded to Sydell’s tweet with the following”:
Still unbothered, Sydell responded with kindness.
We'll be gone Friday! Bless up https://t.co/MoYnutNj7c

A Warriors fan page picked up the offensive tweet and shared it with their audience.
More class from Cleveland Fans. https://t.co/SEkJcRmf6a

That’s when a user named Cheryll took the tweet and sent it to Moe’s employer, Holton Wise Property Group.

And they fired him.
Our apologies to all who were a party to this attack @HoltonWise does not condone this & we have terminated him
