A funny video: one of the fans of Thomas De Gendt writes “unblock me De Gendt” on the road during Stage 16 (probably) of this year’s Tour de France. Apparently, the Belgian cyclist had blocked him on Twitter for an unknown reason. His friend Lonyo Pastor (@Lonyo77), who took the video, wrote on Twitter that “Hi @DeGendtThomas one of my friends wants to tell you something. He doesn’t know what he did wrong @excusasypupas. And De Gendt really unblocked hem! He answered: “Even I don’t know why he got blocked. He is unblocked now.”

Hi @DeGendtThomas one of my friends wants to tell you something. He doesn’t know what he did wrong @excusasypupas.

The fan says in the video that: “One of my heroes, Thomas De Gendt has blocked me on Twitter. So I try to make him unblock me back (I cannot really understand that part). Because I really like him. I didn’t do anything wrong. I just followed him.”

His friend asks “What is your twitter use (username)”

He answers “Let’s talk about (that) not public”

Thomas De Gendt’s answer and their responses on Twitter are below:
