One would imagine that L.J. Hoes has heard roughly 10,000 different variations of "Haha, your last name is Hoes!" over the course of his life, and that his patience for people who mock his name is understandably low. But last night on Twitter, Hoes showed us all how to calmly and constructively deal with the haters.
At some point last night, a young Twitter user tweeted something snarky about Hoes's name (the offending tweet seems to have been deleted). Hoes responded to her, and this hilarious exchange took place:
@gracieefreeman and cause I'm an athlete I'm still human. I have feelings just like you. I was just blessed to be able to play a sport good— L.J. Hoes (@MRLJHOES2U) September 24, 2013
@MRLJHOES2U I'm sorry ok? I love baseball and the last thing I want is for a player to dislike me— gracie✝ (@gracieefreeman) September 24, 2013
@gracieefreeman it's all good just understand we have feelings too. I wasn't trying to get people to harass you.— L.J. Hoes (@MRLJHOES2U) September 24, 2013

These two are going to get an A+ in Mrs. Ridely's Conflict Resolution class.
