Patriots’ Chris Long tackles haters on Twitter


Haters gonna hate, but Chris Long of the New England Patriots has a retort for all of you.

Fans put Long on blast after publically announcing last week that he was going to skip the Super Bowl champs’ visit to Donald Trump’s White House. At least five of his teammates will, too.

Several Patriots said they’d miss the celebatory visit because of Trump, with running back LeGarrette Blount saying, “I just don’t feel welcome in that house.”

Long said last week that his declining an invite was “my call.” Fans subsequently called him out, telling him to “stick to football,” while one told the DE, who is white, that he “hates white people.” One even inexplicably told him he “hates the troops.”

After watching the shade roll in for the past week, Long decided to fire back. And he did so in a very Trump-like fashion — by responding via Twitter.

Take a look — and enjoy.
