Whatever Happened To “Hey, I Don’t Come Down To Where You Work And Knock The C**k Out Of Your Mouth” Comeback When Responding To Hecklers?

Colombian soccer player Javier Florez is out on bail while the Court considers whether to charge him with murder amid allegations that he shot a fan that allegedly has repeatedly taunted him recently.

Javier Florez, who plays for Colombian team Atletico Junior, appeared Sunday before a public prosecutor near the Caribbean coastal city of Barranquilla.

Florez turned himself in to police several hours after the alleged shooting on Sunday.

The dead man was named as Israel Cantillo Escamilla, who was reported to have been among several fans who taunted Florez after a key loss against Once Caldas in the Colombia soccer league.

Clearly, Florez could not handle criticism very well. I guess this is as good a reason as any as to why he didn’t become a stand-up comedian like his parents hoped he would.

“What’s the deal with Ecuador? Like they couldn’t come up with a more creative name? Yes, you’re country is located on the equator – that’s great – but tell me something I don’t know. I mean, what gives, people, am I right?”

“You suck!”

(bang! bang! bang!)

Yeah, that wouldn’t have been good.
