Internet trolls just received a new nickname, thanks to Chicago Bears head coach Marc Trestman. They now can be called Twitter terrorists.

Yes, Twitter terrorists.

Following the Bears’ second consecutive loss Sunday, defensive end Lamarr Houston responded to the negativity and went on a brief Twitter rant about fair-weather fans freaking out about Chicago’s poor performance. Houston called for the “real fans” to stand up and said the rest can “eat dirt” after the Bears blew a 14-point lead and fell 31-24 to the Carolina Panthers on the road.

Trestman told reporters Monday he was aware of Houston’s tweets and added that the team spends a lot of time talking about how players represent themselves on social media. The coach said he urges his guys to ignore the noise and take a moment before responding to “Twitter terrorists.”
