Hey Twitter, Did Anyone Think Victor Cruz Was Faking It?

By: Michael Abitabilo

“Hey Twitter” is a feature here at the Read Zone in which we examine the twitter-sphere’s reaction to certain widely consumed events to search for common themes. For this installment, we checked in to see if anyone thought Victor Cruz was faking his injury last night after dropping a sure touchdown pass. By the way, he wasn’t.

Hey Twitter: did anyone think Victor Cruz was faking his injury last night?

Ok, so the short answer to our question is yes. Some people thought Cruz was faking his injury last night. But let’s dig a bit deeper.

Season ending injuries are so funny lol!

WOW YOU WERE SO WRONG BUT ALSO WHY WERE YOU YELLING SMFH WOW

1 percent sure you’re not an idiot.

Nope.

At least you had the common courtesy to bestow upon him before calling him a lying bum.

Once the replay showed Cruz grabbing his knee before he even hit the ground, cooler heads started to prevail:

But not everyone was convinced:

LMAO you call yourself “Al Pachino” because you hate yourself [crying emoji] [tongue out emoji] [poop emoji].

Clearly, once Cruz was carted off the field in tears and the Giants announced he had a torn patellar tendon, people knew this was a serious injury, right?

Or not.

Mike Abitabilo is the co-founder of the Read Zone, and kind of sort of for a brief second wondered whether Cruz was faking it.
