Super Bowl LIV: Kansas City Chiefs' Nick Bosa rumbled after fake quote on Twitter supporting Trump surfaces
Kansas City Chiefs defensive end star, Nick Bosa found himself right in the middle of a controversy just hours before the big Super Bowl LIV. The news comes after a fake quote surfaced attributed to the player showing his support to President Donald Trump. The quote was by a Twitter account renowned for posting fake stories. The news comes after he won the 2019 Defensive Rookie of the Year award Saturday night.
It was also reported that the tweet had one big giveaway that it was fake. The link in the tweet took the users to a seven-year-old Bleacher Report article: "Marcus Vick, Brother of Michael Vick, Puts a $1K Bounty on Riley Cooper." That though didn't stop fans from responding to the tweet which clocked over 8000 likes and 1200+ retweets. While many of the tweets were in jest, there was some in that took a more serious tone. Trump supporters went on the offensive saying they would root for the 49ers.
"I'm a proud Trump supporter and I will do anything to visit him at the White House. If that offends anybody, too bad." 49ers rookie sensation Nick Bosa sat down with B/R for an in-depth interview before Super Bowl LIV," the tweet read. The site also stated that the Twitter account going by the name of "Barry McCockiner" had a history of denting sports news cycles.
