Kevin Youkilis Defends NFL Fandom Against Angry Patriots Fans On Twitter


Kevin Youkilis was forced to play some defense on Twitter on Monday.

The former Boston Red Sox infielder found himself under fire on social media for being a fan of the Cincinnati Bengals. Youkilis, along with being a part of Red Sox lore, also is Tom Brady’s brother-in-law, which led to many Patriots fans coming at Youk for not being a New England “fan.”

Youkilis was having none of it.

Youkilis also had to defend the honor of Cincinnati’s staple food chain Skyline Chili:

Keep doing you, Youk, even if we’re definitely all out on Skyline Chili
