Mike Mitchell tells fan to 'kill yourself' on Twitter

For whatever reason, Steelers safety Mike Mitchell thought it would be in his best interest to troll a Twitter troll by responding to criticism with a disturbing remark of his own.

After a poor game against the Titans, Mitchell received at least one tweet from a fan telling him such (since this fan didn't have anything better to do on his Monday night). Mitchell then direct messaged the fan, telling him or her to "kill yourself," via CBS Pittsburgh.

In the NFL, you're going to be a target on social media, especially after a bad game. Mitchell should either accept the criticism as part of the gig or just stay away from Twitter and other forms of social media. Idiots everywhere find it funny to go after athletes in this manner for one reason or another.

Mitchell fell down to this fan's level by joining in on the nonsense.

The Steelers have reportedly requested that Mitchell stay away from social media.
