Mitchell Schwartz Destroys Bitter Browns Fan on Twitter
NFL players are no strangers to dealing with fans trying to take shots at them on social media. Retired offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz dealt with that situation on Friday when an upset Cleveland Browns fan called Schwartz "bitter" for sticking up for former teammate Baker Mayfield's new clothing line.
Schwartz, who played for Cleveland from 2012-2015, was quick to fire back at the Browns fan, saying that he's anything but bitter. He destroyed the fan by pointing out the success that came after he left Cleveland in 2016, including four All-Pro nods and a Super Bowl ring with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Schwartz wasn't done there. On top of his personal accomplishments, he pointed out how the Browns went a combined 1-31 over the two seasons following his departure, going as far as saying that he has "gratitude (Cleveland) wasn't serious about keeping me."
The whole Twitter issue stemmed from the fact that former Browns OT Joe Thomas called Mayfield out for launching a new clothing line this close to the start of the 2022 NFL season. Schwartz didn't have any of that, essentially saying that the former Cleveland QB is allowed to do what he wants on his off days.
Schwartz has made it abundantly clear that he didn't necessarily enjoy his time with the Browns. After all, he didn't even mention them in his retirement speech. On the flip side, he did reflect fondly on his Chiefs tenure, which lasted from 2016 until his final NFL snap in 2020.
Nevertheless, Cleveland fans are hardly in the position to call anyone bitter. Taking all of their past and present controversies into account, it's probably best for them not to cast stones on glass houses. Otherwise, they're at risk of being eviscerated by the likes of Schwartz on Twitter.
