So, tomorrow you go to work, and your co-worker accidentally spills some coffee on your keyboard. You respond by slamming your keyboard in his face. And you are now telling us you don't expect to be fired over that because you're normally a nice guy?Probably.
He reacted badly to having a crash. Now people who have never met him are demanding that he loses his career on the basis of a 10 second video because they need to rage against someone. Social media pile-ons are worse than a petty scrap in a bike race. People have flaws and if you are raging strangers on the internet I am guessing you have more than most, so just try to be kind.
Maybe he should ride for Astana. They're Teflon as far as criticism is concerned - remember Lopez, people cheered that.
It doesn't really matter if he's a nice guy or not (and word is, he isn't), and you calling it "a petty scrap" doesn't change what happened. Not to mention this is broadcast before millions of people worldwide.
