Michael Strahan’s message is simple: haters gonna hate.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was booed mercilessly Sunday at Levi’s Stadium in a pregame ceremony honoring past Super Bowl MVPs. Strahan, whose New York Giants defeated Brady in Super Bowl XLII, couldn’t help but find the situation rather comical.

And no, it wasn’t because Strahan has anything against Brady. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Strahan’s next tweet perfectly summarized the state of the NFL and what it means to be Brady (a four-time Super Bowl champion and arguably the greatest quarterback in league history).

Just another day in the life of TB12. At least Strahan had his back.
