As it turns out, Brock will probably be okay, but I can only imagine how much Fedor, Nog, BJ ect fans would have reacted if their favorite fighters were dealing with the same situations and people were actually trying to terrorize them while they were. They would be tarred and feathered. There would be bans happening all over the place and utter outrage.

This situation has shown a sickening double standard. It's not okay to hate any fighter, and I think that's something that needs to be gotten across.
I think we all agree that we wouldn't wish this on anyone regardless.
