Americans were rooting against Cristiano Ronaldo yesterday. Joel Embiid was rooting for him. Embiid told everyone on Twitter that his World Cup rooting interests ran counter to most Americans. You can guess what the fallout of that was:
Ronaldo my boy #halamadrid

This one doesn’t even make a lick of sense.
Yo for real fuck @JoelEmbiid. That's some Donald Sterling shit you just pulled

And there’s stuff like these gems:
@JoelEmbiid if it wasn't for the USA you'd still be living in a third world country, show some respect.

@JoelEmbiid fuck you bitch. You living in USA

And because Embiid roots for one of the most famous athletes on the planet, he’s obviously worth passing on in the draft for that reason:
“@JoelEmbiid: Ronaldo my boy #halamadrid” praying the Sixers pass on this guy.

Some people just get right to the point:
@JoelEmbiid fuck you you crippled bitch
