That **** happens every time USA plays Japan in anything.
I don't know if I'd call it dishonest, but there's something a bit... something about these sorts of stories. As people note, I can search twitter and likely come up with 20 really terrible statues on anything. There's a ****load of people using twitter. While it's sad that some of them are giant *******s, 20 tweets aren't really indicative of anything beyond that. So easy to write stuff like this and just abandon any sense of perspective.
