Begging for a follow is a hallmark of social media. Capitals forward Brooks Laich already has a big online fanbase (being engaged to a Hollywood superstar has probably helped), but he’s not excepted from those requests.
Tom Wilson and Michael Latta, who have gained notoriety of their own thanks to their off-ice hijinks) took follow-begging one step further by doing so in the comments of Laich’s own Instagram post.
This isn’t the first time it’s happened. Seven weeks ago, Latta commented on Laich’s post with, “Can I get a follow back please?”
Until Laich shows his lineys a little love, this will likely continue.
