Former Atlanta Brave baseball great and Twitter fiend Larry “Chipper” Jones got into an angry spat the other day over the popular social media platform with an angry fan and alleged United States military veteran who never forgot an instance during his childhood when the future Hall of Fame third baseman snubbed his autograph request.

Not cool, Chipper. Not cool at all.
