Part of being a public figure – especially a pro athlete – is being subjected to an unnecessary amount of ridicule on social media.
If Antonio Cromartie didn’t already know that, he found out the hard way after the Jets’ loss to the Texans Sunday. A few Jets fans took to Twitter to not only insult Cromartie, but to take shots at his wife and kids; many of which admittedly went way too far, even for the filth that usually gets tossed around on Twitter.
Cromartie tweeted a photo containing some of the nastier tweets.
At the end of the day my wife nor my kids r on the field so shld never b disrespected by our own fan base like this pic.twitter.com/UGI3ABVisc

Cromartie’s wife of course responded.
She went on to end any hopes for a reconciliation by saying the, “Jets fan base ain’t sh**t.”
Good to see both sides are taking the high road.
