Jennings tweeted after Saturday’s game that you "can’t please everyone,” and that served as a launching point for his critics.
And these fans haven’t exactly been level-headed in their criticism. It’s not the first time Jennings has faced ire from the fans. Boos rained down on him earlier this season when he accounted for three turnovers against New Mexico State. Things have seemingly gotten worse.
From death threats to calls for his transfer, things have gotten pretty ridiculous for Jennings on social media.

I'm all about supporting a player when they're down, but @JENNINGSWINNING is single-handedly destroying our chances at a successful season.— Finck (@xoFinck) November 16, 2014

As these radical tweets have gone viral and made rounds through the Internet, Jennings’ teammates have started to take notice. Some took to Twitter to mock the criticism and call out fans for their harsh words.

As a teammate of Anthony Jennings I find it embarrassing that our fans are sending him death threats. Just plain unacceptable.— %%MATCH_5%% (@SnapFlow50) November 17, 2014
It’s fair to point out that not all LSU fans share the negative sentiment from some of their peers. Jennings’ detractors have devolved into the minority with his supporters taking to social media to drown out the more extreme opinions.
I wish the stuff ab @JENNINGSWINNING would stop. He's still human just like the rest of us ??— l e a u x (@leaux25) November 17, 2014
