Last night, in the midst of Ole Miss' second half comeback against arch-rival Mississippi State in the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament, Marshall Henderson began to trend on Twitter. Unsurprisingly, the non-objective tweets involving the Ole Miss Rebel shooting guard were firmly in two camps: "we love Marshall Henderson and don't want to see him go" and "we want horrible things to happen to him because he makes us irrationally angry."
Here are some tweets from the latter. Enjoy.
I'll say this...Marshall Henderson represents EVERYTHING Ole Miss!— Brian Johnson (@BrianJohnson_) March 14, 2014
Marshall Henderson may be the trashiest athlete ever.— Heath Fisackerly® (@HeathFisack_18) March 14, 2014
Dear Ole Miss people: Marshall Henderson isn't that good. I'm sure I could make 7 three pointers if I shot 20 a game too.— Dylan Rasberry (@DylanRasberry) March 14, 2014
I've said it before and I'll say it again. I'd rather my team lose with class than win with a guy like Marshall Henderson. 100% of the time.— Rob Phillips (@BulldogRob) March 14, 2014
okay nevermind. I’ll come back to twitter after that trash bag of a person Marshall Henderson goes away.— thefilmjerk (@thefilmjerkk) March 14, 2014
Marshall Henderson could very well be the most obnoxious thing about Ole Piss..— Anna McNeill (@McAnna_13) March 14, 2014

Marshall Henderson looks like a white jail gang member— Alex (@Alex_ilazovic) March 14, 2014
There are just far too many good anti-Henderson Tweets, all of which are coated in a fine, sugary layer of Rebel Schadenfreude. There are so many, in fact, that I'm having a hard time picking a favorite! There's the "I wanna commit violence against Henderson" guy, the "I could play basketball as well as Henderson guy," the hordes of people evoking the tired and stupid "class" argument in a sports rivalry, moral equivalence, righteous indignation, pure hatred... The list goes on!
It's like Andy Kennedy remarked last night, "Marshall's gonna be Marshall," and that's enough to drive any True Maroon State fan up the wall with outrage. Well, that and...
Marshall Henderson just slapped the Hunt Bros pizza out of the mouths of State fans.— Handsome Rick (@RickMuscles) March 14, 2014
Nobody knocks Pizza out of a Grinder's mouth without consequence. Nobody.
