Ohio State has contacted police after men’s basketball forward EJ Liddell received abuse and threats on social media following the Buckeyes’ loss to Oral Roberts in the first round of the NCAA tournament.

Following the loss, Liddell shared screenshots of messages he said he received from two angry fans that included the threats. In response, Liddell asked, “What did I do to deserve this? I’m human.”

"You are such a f---ing disgrace,” one person wrote to Liddell. “Don't ever show your face at Ohio State. We hate you. I hope you die I really do."
