Reporter with same name as Bears safety got a lot of mean tweets after loss to Packers
One Chris Conte works for a Nashville TV station. Another Chris Conte players for the Bears and got burned on the Packers's game-winning TD. Well, the wrong Chris Conte received a lot of mean tweets from Bears fans.
Both of these guys are named Chris Conte. But only one of them is a professional football player.
They are two totally different people yet some Bears fans didn't realize that Sunday night after Conte, the professional football player, was burned on Green Bay's game-winning touchdown in Chicago.
In a classic case of modern-day mistaken identity, the wrong Chris Conte received some hateful tweets from Bears fans that were supposed to be directed at the Bears safety. His twitter handle, of course, is @chrisconte.
Let's just say people weren't happy with the football player and they let the reporter know about it Sunday night.
