People with the “awesome” idea to rush the field of their pro sports teams might think twice about tweeting their intentions after a Steelers’ fan got bounced from Heinz Field after he announced his plan.

Once it became apparent that the Baltimore Ravens were going to beat Pittsburgh for the AFC wild-card, a fan at Heinz said he would rush the field if his tweet got enough retweets.

For whatever reason, the tweet spread like wildfire, and the fan got way more than the 400 retweets he said it would take for him to act like a fool.

Problem was, the Steelers also saw the tweet and had security escort the fan out before he could carry out his plan.

Still, the fan claims he is not banned from Heinz, so there is that.

After years of research and a series of unpleasant experiences concerning the current child protection services system, Alec Cope decided to combat the cancerous corruption through information. Freelance writing articles as a form of protest and distributing them throughout his former high-school and local area, Alec struck special chords with whomever he was in contact with.

Alec has been involved in activism such as sit down protests as well as Idle No More gatherings. Being independent for the majority of his time, Alec became a member of the WeAreChange family to assist one of the organizations that inspired him to become active in the first place. With a larger platform and positive support Alec has committed the majority of his time to research, writing, and maintaining social media with the goal to continue expanding the awakening sweeping throughout all levels of society.

Growing up within a rural area in Northern Michigan as well as being a native American descendant, Alec is seeking to expose environmental abuse in his state as well as globally. A high-school dropout, Alec chases his passion for writing and empowering individuals while showing any isolated person that they too can overcome the odds with a community that will support them. Alec lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan near Kalamazoo.
