Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell has established himself as one of the league's best rushers over his three years in the league. His dominance will need to wait until next season though after tearing his MCL and PCL earlier this month -- an injury that will sideline him for the rest of the year.
Sadly, yet unsurprisingly, users on Twitter felt the need to send hateful messages after Bell's injury. Specifically, a couple tweeted that they were happy that the 23-year-old was injured.
Below are screenshots of a pair of tweets that Bell responded to -- with expletives and racial slurs blurred.
Even in a dark time of his career, Bell is killing his haters with kindness.
