During the St. Louis Blues-Dallas Stars game on Wednesday, Elliott tweeted out a cheer for the Blues. Maybe not the smartest move, but St. Louis is his hometown, so not that big a deal, right? Wrong. Dallas fans attacked Zeke with tweets.

Some of these tweets are offensive. We don't know why a fan would want Zeke to be traded or hope he gets injured just for cheering for a different team. He's the future of their football team and they treat him like dirt. Not cool. Zeke did reply later on, making a joke out of the situation.
