Penn State assistant Herb Hand fires back at Twitter troll

7/18/2015

Mess with Penn State offensive line coach Herb Hand -- or his family -- at your own risk.

The mild-mannered father of three is a fan favorite in Happy Valley for his charity work and interaction with students. But he was none too pleased Saturday afternoon when a Twitter troll insulted his daughter.

After Hand welcomed her back from Haiti on Twitter, one commenter with the handle @PedState2016 -- which has since been deleted -- wrote, "She looks just like you Herb. That doesn't do her any favors in her dating life."

Here's Hand's response:

And, of course, it didn't take long for one of his offensive lineman to chimeĀ in.

The moral of the story: Don't be a jerk on Twitter. And, if you are, you might want to pick someone other than Hand to bully.
