A late-night rant about Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett appeared on the Twitter account of Detroit Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva. Posted by Ben Golliver Between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. on Wednesday morning, multiple messages appeared on the Twitter feed of Detroit Pistons forward Charlie Villanueva, who goes by @CV31 on the social networking site.  Villanueva is a regular Twitter user, but these messages were different, as they were extremely negative and directed anger and frustration at Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett. A first message read, "KG talks alot of crap, he's prob never been in a fight, I would love to get in a ring with him, I will expose him." Shortly thereafter, two additional messages appeared on the account, "KG called me a cancer patient, I'm pissed because, u know how many people died from cancer, and he's tossing it like it's a joke ...  I wouldn't even trip about that, but a cancer patient, I know way 2 many people who passed away from it, and I have a special place for those." Screenshots of the tweets are visible below. charlie-villanueva The Pistons played the Celtics on Tuesday night in Detroit, and Villaneuva and Garnett were both issued technical fouls after a minor confrontation late in the game. Villanueva has dealt with jokes about his appearance for years, as this 2006 SI.com article by Andrew Lawrence makes clear. Villanueva suffers from "a mysterious skin disease known as alopecia universalis," writes Lawrence, "which would slowly make him hairless." NBA players have had their Twitter accounts hacked in the past, most memorably Celtics guard Ray Allen, whose account had explicit messages posted on it. It's not immediately clear whether Villanueva was posting the messages or if his account was hacked, although shortly before the Garnett-related tweets were posted, the following message was posted: "Just landed in the ATL, we must win tomorrow, we will turn this around, I'm a believer." The Pistons, who are one of only two teams in the league that are 0-4 on the season, along with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Clippers, play the Hawks in Atlanta on Wednesday night.  Update (Wednesday): ESPN's Justin Verrier confirms that the tweets were written by Villanueva himself.

Charlie Villanueva Twitter rant on Kevin Garnett

haha, you sound like a 10-year old that just had a lot of sugar. Go learn how to talk little guy before you make fun of anyone but yourself. My guess is that you are some ugly loser who can't get any attention from girls, so has to cut up other people on the internet. I feel bad for how stupid you must really be.


haha i'm not cutting down anybody, i'm just saying that twitter is gay as hell. you must be a loser who seems to know exactly who i am and you're the one cutting me down. suckaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

whofan74 -

I still don't understand what the big deal was about Garnett comparing that game seven to war. People are so damn sensitive about our troops it's not even funny. He said it during an interview after his team lost that game six to Sacramento, and he was pissed. To me, that shows intensity and passion. Now IF he said the cancer patient thing to Villanueva, THAT is wrong. I still have my doubts as to whether or not he did though.

Charlie Villanueva Twitter rant on Kevin Garnett

Trash talking has been going on in the NBA for decades - and always will but, KG saying that is downright disgusting. I've had several family members die from cancer and this is not funny. Ever since he won a ring, his ego and trash talking have hit an all time high. Someone needs to knock his skinny ass out.

Charlie Villanueva Twitter rant on Kevin Garnett

It seems to me that Bronco&Husky doesnt get many friend requests or anyone following his teweets therefore he thinks they are gay.  I myself have been able to reconnect with old Marine Corps buds and high school mates.  Im able to stay in touch with my son easier because of facebook.  I guess if he had a life besides posting ridiculous political crap he wouldnt be posting dumb s**t

I've never used Twitter in my life and I only use facebook to talk to the odd family member or two who live far away. I'm at work now killing time, this is how I do it. I guess I can go to facebook or twitter and post stupid crap like "I'm having a bad day" "I like that". Or how about people posting stuff like this "I'm going to make some brownies today" and then people replying with the comments "ooh sounds good".  It's fucking gay as hell.  I'm only 29, all my high school friends who I want to talk to I talk to on the phone or go out with them. I'm sure this guy has about 800 friends and talks to about 20 of them. Watch the South Park episode where they rip Facebook apart. You'll see the truth.
