- ‘Fans’ trolled 20-year-old Henry in a January post
Bitter trolls have targeted a instagram January post to attack Geelong star Ollie Henry with embarrassing messages after his team’s loss to Collingwood on Friday night.
The 20-year-old left the Magpies out for the season, and some fans just can’t seem to get over him.
Henry scored twice against his former team on Friday at MCG, but it wasn’t enough to prevent Craig McRae’s side from taking a 22-point victory.
The forward celebrated one of his majors by covering his ears to silence vocal detractors clad in black and white, and then some ‘fans’ took to social media to attack the young gun.
Among the brutal comments were: ‘You can’t meet an open target, you fail… enjoy the L (loss), with another post: ‘back to the 2’s (reserve grade) you run out’.

Several trolls weren’t happy with Henry’s reaction on the pitch, then commented on an Instagram photo (pictured) the 20-year-old posted in January.

Another ‘fan’ referenced Henry’s wild goal celebration after being booed by Pies fans on Friday night when they wrote ‘celebration creepy ha ha roaring like a cat’, while another slammed to the star with ‘sucks, mama’s son’. ‘.
In the lead up to Friday’s game, Magpies forward Beau McCreery told the first poddy tensions could boil over.
“There’s a bit of bad blood there in a way,” he said.
“They (Geelong) are always good and obviously someone (Henry) has left Collingwood to go there.”
As a teenager, Henry represented the Geelong Falcons in the NAB League.
He was then drafted by Collingwood as the 17th pick in the 2020 AFL draft, before requesting a ‘home’ switch to join his brother Jack Henry at the end of the 2022 AFL season.
