As was national news, Tiger Woods was arrested for DUI on Monday morning in Jupiter, Florida. In the days following, police reports of the incident, photos of Woods’ damaged vehicle, and dashcam footage of his field sobriety test and arrest were released to the public and disseminated across media platforms.
And the public backlash has piled on Woods. If you go on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or any number of social media sites, you’ll see criticisms of Woods and the incident, and a slew of memes, photoshops and jokes at his expense.
Fellow PGA Tour golfer and two-time major champion Martin Kaymer has come to Woods’ defense via a 2-minute and 5-second video on Twitter, where he urges people to be less critical of the 14-time major champion.
“My wish would be to stop being so nasty,” Kaymer said. “Try to help.”
Here’s the full video:
