Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas is a bit of a heat merchant on Twitter. Call him out and he’ll bring you right back down to Earth:

On Saturday, a fan snapped a picture with Isiah Thomas—he of the “Bad Boy” Detroit Pistons, whose name is spelled a bit differently. But she tagged the wrong one.

Boston’s 26-year-old explosive scoring guard jokingly responded, “Nice meeting you LOL,” and the fan went wild.

She released a string of angry tweets, most of which would fall under the "crossing the line" category. You can check them out on her page here (Warning: NSFW language).

Take a look at some of the cleaner ones:

@Isaiah_Thomas thanks for giving me some shine #Petty Labelle, go hard in the paint, who u play 4, never heard of u!


Thomas wisely didn’t respond back after simply calling the fan an "internet thug."

He later posted a message about a pro-am game, so his mind is clearly on hoops, not ornery fans.
