Erin Andrews goes off on Twitter hecklers

Erin Andrews is one of the most prominent women in sports media today. She’s an inspiration to many up-and-coming reporters, but also receives undue criticism from hecklers who have nothing better to do with their time.

But Andrews is a strong woman, and when she’s under attack, she fires back.

So when a group of trolls attempted to get her riled up by throwing verbal jabs on Twitter, she went to town on them.

It all started when 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick blasted a Twitter troll earlier in the week. Andrews congratulated Kap for standing up for himself, but then quickly received some criticism. So, she responded.

But that was just a warm-up. She then began zinging trolls left and right.

And when one particular heckler questioned her skill set as a reporter, Andrews ribbed him about his avatar photo.

Things slowed down a bit, and the Twitter war seemed to be dying down. Then some random guy compared her to Pam Oliver, who she replaced. Andrews, this time, took the high road.

After Andrews employed a more passive approach, things finally got quiet. However, one Twitter user questioned her credibility on Friday evening, and the Fox Sports reporter responded.

We applaud Andrews for sending a message and standing up to the hecklers.
