Others, however, had some rather distasteful responses. Among those was American-Lebanese webcam model Mia Khalifa, who posted this tweet just minutes after Hayward’s injury:
Yes, emotions were high in Cleveland, especially with Kyrie Irving returning to the city where he spent the first six seasons of his NBA career. Still, there are far better ways to get your point across.
Khalifa’s tweet fell particularly flat on Anna Horford, sister of Celtics forward Al Horford, who responded rather bluntly.
(Warning: the following tweet contains some NSFW language.)
It’s hard to decide who had a worse reaction to Hayward’s injury: Khalifa, or FOX Sports 1’s Skip Bayless, who got reamed out for his insensitive remarks.
The Celtics, meanwhile, need to get used to life without Hayward, who suffered a dislocated ankle and a fractured tibia. The loss of the 27-year-old will be difficult to overcome, but the C’s might have the talent necessary to stay afloat.
