Twitterverse jumps to the defense of crying Kansas fan
Fans get emotional. It’s part of the madness that goes along with the NCAA basketball tournament.
But broadcaster CBS is getting some heat from its viewers over repeatedly cutting to a camera shot of a young Kanasas fan in tears during the last few minutes of the game against Stanford.
Take a look at some of the reactions.
Hopefully Crying Kansas Kid at least gets a royalty check from CBS after all that airtime.

I hate Kansas don't get me wrong. But CBS filming a crying kid is absolutely pathetic. #stopbullying

CBS just showed a little kid crying at the game. I really feel for that kid, that's how I look when my teams lose. You do you, little kid

Dear CBS, Can you show Kennedy getting shot and Theisman's leg breaking? Signed, #CryingKansasKid

Some Twitter users are steering clear of the subject.
It'll be out there, folks. I'm not going to do the poor fella like that
