Ian Poulter is known for two things: Being outspoken and being a threat in Ryder Cups. But this time, he took it to another level by possibly getting a heckler fired form his job via Twitter.
Turns out that JJ Downum, the man who heckled Poulter, is the Assistant Athletic Director for Florida Southern College. Downum sent a message to Barstool Sports about his heckling but Poulter found out and didn’t take too kindly to Downum’s actions.

Apparently, Downum didn’t like the attention and ended up deleting his Twitter account. The reactions of fans have been mixed, especially since the golfer being heckled was Poulter who is not the most liked by fans and has a reputation for a bad attitude.
No word on if Downum still has his job at FSC. Although he deleted his Twitter account, Poulter still has the screenshot of what Downum said on his page.
Let this be a lesson kids. Be careful with how much you drink and be careful who you heckle because they may not take it so lightly, as Poulter didn’t.
UPDATE: Downum lost his job after Poulter’s tweet went out.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter @ChiGolfRadio! I heckle things at myself sometimes!
