#WorldCupFever: Wrong Marcelo Attacked On Twitter Over Brazil Own Goal

So much hate!

When Brazilian defender Marcelo put the ball into his own net during last night’s World Cup opener between the hosts and Croatia, a number of the more venomous denizens of Twitter exploded in anger, directing all that vitriol at the wrong person— an Italian model dude whose Twitter handle is unfortunately @Marcello. It’s funny that none of those whose fingers were so quick to fly across keyboards didn’t think to check out Marcello’s profile picture and bio (even his handle: double l) before spewing hate. Talk about a stupid case of mistaken identity.

Some of the less offensive tweets are below along with Marcello’s surprisingly cool responses.

And just in case Robin van Persie doesn’t deliver for the Netherlands today, his Twitter handle isn’t @rvp. Now you know what not to do.
