In this Nov. 17, 2018 photo provided by Auburn University Athletics, Dee Ford poses for a picture with Auburn Director of Athletics Allen Greene and Auburn University President Steven Leath before a college football game at Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn, Ala. An Englishwoman has seen the best and worst that Twitter would have to offer the American football player who shares her name, if he had an account. Dee Ford told the Kansas City Star she was deluged with angry tweets from Kansas City Chiefs fans who thought they were venting at linebacker Dee Ford after his late penalty during Sunday's AFC Championship loss. Oddly enough, she became a fan of the player and sport after being inadvertently tagged in a positive tweet to the player five years ago. She has spoken to the Chiefs' Dee Ford by phone and attended two games — an Auburn home game last fall and a Chiefs game in London in 2015. (Todd Van Emst/Auburn University Athletics via AP)
