The New England Patriots may inspire more haters than any team in American sports.
And Sunday night, after the Patriots upset the Chiefs to earn their third straight trip to the Super Bowl and their ninth appearance in the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era, those haters were out in force on social media. Scrolling through Twitter after the game and Monday morning wasn’t nearly as entertaining as the Patriots’ 37-31 overtime win, but it was fun. Setting aside the tweets full of profanity, empty threats/promises (“That’s it, I’m never watching the Super Bowl again!”) and dreadful illiteracy, there were some gems.
Haters are going to hate, but New England fans showed they just don’t care. Here’s a roundup of some of the more fun and interesting Tweets.
No matter your race, religion, sexual preference, or party association, we can all come together and hate the Patriots as one. That’s a beautiful thing

I never used to like the Patriots until I found out my loud neighbors who I hate are Chiefs fans. Go Thomas Brady, you have done me a great service.

I’ll give my left kidney to not have the Patriots go to the Super Bowl again

Brady is the greatest player at any position in NFL history. Anyone who disputes this fact at this point can’t be taken seriously. What he’s doing at this age is unbelievable. It’s very likely we will never see anything like it ever again. And I hate the Patriots, by the way.

It seems like it’s every year with the Patriots. I’m tired of having to root for some random team in the #NFC just because the Pats always represent the #AFC in the #SuperBowl. I forgot how much I hate the Patriots until today. pic.twitter.com/WprHBDP3Vy

Hate the Patriots all you want, what they continue to do on a yearly basis is beyond incredible.

It’s so boring to watch the Patriots play, everything is executed like surgery. It’s clinical, cold, and lifeless. I hate them.
