Seattle Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock was just trying to enjoy his long weekend when he was absolutely victimized on social media. The US Open Twitter account had a ruthless clap back to a Seahawks fan who claimed that tennis wasn’t a sport, taking an absurdly savage shot at Lock while roasting the fan in a reply that has since gone viral. After recovering from the brutal and fairly unwarranted roast, Lock had a perfect response on Twitter, keeping things classy during the holiday weekend.
Happy 4th to all but especially to the intern at the @usopen ️12s

Lock isn’t taking the comment from the social media intern too personally, having a laugh about it on Twitter while celebrating Independence Day. Whether or not Lock is even a tennis fan is unclear, but it’s hard to imagine he’s a huge supporter of the sport after the ruthless shade he received over the weekend.
Unfortunately for Twitter user @seahawksfan2314, he got put in a casket by the tennis tournament’s social media account, and virtually all of the platform was witness to it.
not a sport says the person about to watch 17 games of Drew Lock at QB

After trading Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos in the offseason, the Seahawks appear to be prepared to start Lock under center in 2022. While they’ve been linked with a possible trade for Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield, nothing has materialized of yet.
Lock spent the first three years of his career with the Broncos, who drafted him in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He’s featured in 24 games, starting 21, and logged 25 touchdown passes and 20 interceptions. He certainly hasn’t gotten off to an electric start to his career in the NFL, but he’s hoping to turn things around with his fresh start in Seattle.
