Chipper Jones made a lot of fans during his 19 seasons with the Atlanta Braves, but the former Braves star lost at least one supporter because he didn't sign an autograph.

Professional athletes sign many autographs each year. However, they have to draw the line somewhere and stop signing at some point during a "session." Fans will feel disappointed if they were not one of the lucky ones who got an autograph.

That appears to be the case with one of Jones' ex-fans.

Twitter user @thatgrayboy called out Jones, a fan favorite, on Twitter on Wednesday in order to express his anger over something that happened when he was just a little boy. Jones didn't take kindly to the harsh words.

Busted Coverage's Joe Kinsey posted what are allegedly direct messages between Jones and "Captain America."

Jones eventually found the "block" button, ending this back-and-forth.
