Chris Conte is a Chicago Bears safety taking blame for the team's last minute loss to Green Bay on Sunday. He notably had an interception go right through his hands late in the game and of course Aaron Rodgers beat the entire Bears secondary on a long pass play in the final minute. Furthermore, he's been something of a target for fans' ire throughout the season as one member of Chicago's porous defense. While you can't blame an entire loss on one person (USUALLY), Bears fans took to Twitter to give Conte grief. Unfortunately, the collective fact checker must have been drowning themselves in a vat of vodka spiked Gatorade, because all of the Tweets went to the wrong Chris Conte, a reporter for WTVF in Nashville. A few selections... @chrisconte you're a ***** — Michael Balzano (@Mbalzano5) December 30, 2013 . @chrisconte how do u not get that INT? It went right thru your hands! You’re terrible at your job #bears — RKI Fantasy Football (@RonKarkoviceFF) December 30, 2013 Someone tell @chrisconte that Motel 6 is looking for an overnight janitor. I'm sure he's qualified for that. — Dan Lewis (@danlewis1) December 30, 2013 Thankfully, the other Conte is taking it all in stride... For realz "@scooter186: @chrisconte on behalf of all Bears fans, thank you for allowing us to berate you. It is very therapeutic for us.” — Chris Conte (@chrisconte) December 30, 2013 So far this whole Chris Conte Bears debacle has netted me 100+ followers and about 250 retweets. http://t.co/LCh43GfSmf — Chris Conte (@chrisconte) December 30, 2013 This is just another example of not only all of the problems with cyber bullying, but also with people being so angry and irrational, they can't bother to verify their ridiculous messages are even going to the right person. And we wonder why Jay Cutler deleted his account. [H/T DNAInfo.com]
