Tom Brady’s Donald Trump endorsement earned this rugby player a bunch of hate

Wednesday November 9th, 2016

It’s been a rough few days for Tom Brady. 

No, not the Patriots quarterback. He had a bye week and then got exactly what he wanted in the presidential election. But English rugby player Tom Brady hasn’t been as fortunate. 

When Donald Trump revealed on Monday that the American Brady had voted for him, Brady immediately started getting hateful tweets. The only problem is the Patriots quarterback isn’t on Twitter. The Leicester Tigers winger is, though. 

Well, Olivia, it was a lot!

You get the idea. There were also a bunch of people congratulating him for his wonderful choice, and one guy who sent Brady over a dozen tweets about the NFL CBA and the RICO act

The Brady behind the account tried to clear things up, but the tweets kept coming. 

Sorry about all that, Tom. Good luck against the Newport Gwent Dragons on Saturday.
