Social media can be a cruel place, even to an inflatable football with weird-coloured things sticking out of his head. 

The assumption that Network Noel is an inanimate yellow football on a stick has seemingly led to a lot of people on Twitter giving the poor lad abuse, which is out of order, obviously. With the now-famous Jimmy Kimmel segment in mind, Noel decided to read a few of the mean tweets about himself that had been sent, possibly using the free wi-fi on Dublin Bus that the video was made to advertise. Things got a little bit emotional for poor aul Noel. 

Ah here, leave it out lads.
