‘This Isn’t Funny’ – Alyssa Healy Hits Back at a Twitter User for Trolling Mitchell Starc

Australia wicketkeeper-batter Alyssa Healy came in the limelight after hitting back at a Twitter user who trolled her husband, Australia speedster Mitchell Starc. The user shared a picture of Starc from the last rites of late Phil Hughes. The left-handed opening batsman died in a bizarre manner who got hit in the neck by a bouncer, during a Sheffield Shield match at the Sydney Cricket Ground on November 25, 2014.

That caused a vertebral artery dissection which led to a subarachnoid haemorrhage. Hughes was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney and underwent surgery. That led him into an induced coma and he died on 27 November, three days before his 26th birthday.

The incident left a great impact on not only his teammates but also on every cricket fans. And a meme on this matter wouldn’t be justified in any reason. Alyssa Healy too reacted the way it should be. She slammed the user for using Starc’s image.

It all started when the user commented on Mitchell Starc’s decision to give priority to the T20 World Cup 2020 over the Indian Premier League 2020. And amid the crunch situation of global pandemic COVID-19 outbreak, ICC has postponed the T20 World Cup and IPL will take its place in the UAE. In the image which was used for trolling, an emotional Starc can be seen at the funeral of late Phil Hughes.

While the user didn’t think about the consequences of his witty yet insensitive acts, Alyssa Healy was in no mood to tolerate.

Meanwhile, the user asked for an apology after Healy’s comment. While backing his post, the user tweeted – “Sorry, but it was just a satire, we love Starc and whole RCB fanbase wants him back. And yea We all Miss Phil.. #Forever408”.

However, Alyssa Healy took it to another level by giving another strong response which led the user to delete his tweet too. The user who backed his post by saying ‘just a satire’ was the reason for another backlash from Healy. She further replied – “Satire is supposed to be funny. This isn’t”.

While meme has become common in daily life, as a cricketer, the least they could expect from their fans is to find humour in everything, but certainly not at the cost of someone’s emotion.

Here are a few reactions on Starc’s decision:
