San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs decided he would reveal some of the hate messages he receives on Twitter.

Most of those who responded when he Tweeted the positive results of last week's MRI exam were encouraging.

But, according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, he re-tweeted five hateful anonymous messages he received that included offensive words.

"Everybody thinks this life is all easy and you got to deal with nothing," Jacobs told CSNBA, regarding his reason for re-tweeting those messages. "I like for people to see what else is out there, what else we deal with as NFL players. Let them see what it is that we go through.

"One person said, 'I hope you die a horrible death.' I tweeted him back saying, 'I'm sure my wife and my kids appreciate that. Have a good day.' It's stuff like that, it's uncalled for. There are some real dumb, stupid people out there."

Jacobs said Twitter is a great way to communicate with fans in a positive way.

"But it's also a great method for weak, heartless cowards. There are a lot of those people out there. It's more funny to me than anything to know there are stupid, dumb people out there like that. I deal with it and move on with my day."
