Some people did not take the New England Patriots signing of Antonio Brown in the best of ways.
That apparently now includes New York Giants fan Tobias Gray, who has been charged with making terrorist threats after he threatened to shoot up Gillette Stadium — the home of the New England Patriots.
“I’m going to pull a white boys school shooting at Foxboro you might as well hand them the ring right now I’m if I ever get my hands on a gun which I don’t have one yet but I’m looking I will go shoot up random people at Foxboro,” Gray wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post, via CBS 4 in Boston.
Gray was seen in court on Monday answering for a different assault charge. He was wearing a Giants jersey and jacket.
Charges against the fan include a fugitive of justice complaint for making terroristic threats in Massachusetts.
“Gray’s attorney said his client was simply upset the Patriots were able to land Brown and did not mean any harm,” the report read.
Needless to say, something of this ilk should be taken seriously. Mass shootings in modern-day American society are sadly the norm.
Regardless of whether this was an empty threat, Gray must answer to it.
