Summary of this Sunday evening Twitter fight between U.S. national team members Jozy Altidore and Oguchi Onyewu.

With his former team, the Red Bulls, getting set to play at RFK Stadium, Altidore called D.C. United “scum.”

Onyewu, a native Washingtonian who was raised in Montgomery County, and a clear thinker, stepped in and said that was not acceptable.

Altidore backed down.

And truth and righteousness were victorious.
