• The man made derogatory comment about Poulter on Facebook
• Poulter uses Reliable Carriers regularly to move his car collection
After a disappointing end to a disappointing year at the Hong Kong Open, Ian Poulter had a lot of time to kill on his journey back from Asia to Orlando.
He spent a lot of that time on Twitter, first doing a Q&A for his 2.28m followers, before coming under fire for outing an employee of Reliable Carriers – an American company he uses regularly to move his car collection.
On Friday, during the second round of the Hong Kong Open, Poulter had a go at a cameraman after making a quadruple-bogey for running behind him when he was getting ready to hit his shot.
The Englishman, somehow, spotted this a shared Facebook from the man in relation to his reaction – and took to Twitter to show his displeasure.
However, not a lot of people agreed with the way he had gone about it.
But Poulter stuck to his guns.
And he did receive some support.
@IanJamesPoulter Customer service doesn't end when the car's delivered. He should remember that he represents his employer & be more tactful— Miranda Allen (@1MirandaAllen) December 11, 2016
@IanJamesPoulter good for you. Folks like to hide behind a keyboard and disparage others. You have a right to fight back.— David Bourgeois (@davidbourgeois) December 11, 2016
