Fake AJ Brown quote causes a stir among Eagles fans

It's been a weird night on Eagles Twitter.

The Super Bowl's first half was ... kinda boring? Anti-climactic? Full of bad football? It wasn't exactly the performance that people expected, and the biggest moment may have been Travis Kelce yelling at Andy Reid. That was certainly the biggest moment on Eagles Twitter, for reasons that only kind of make sense.

First, there was a Tweet from what looked like Eagles wide receiver AJ Brown commenting on the whole exchange:

Almost 13 thousand likes in under an hour is impressive work. A whole bunch of people thought that AJ Brown was throwing shade at Kelce, or the Chiefs, or the NFL. Either way, it would have made waves. And of course, because we can't have nice things – and probably because it was getting too big to keep the charade up anymore – "AJ Brown" tweeted a few minutes later that, uh, actually, he wasn't AJ Brown.

And, just because every report needs a second source, Eagles' safety Darius Slay chimed in to confirm. And not only that, but the account now wants a signed jersey? I don't know:

So, who actually knows what's going on. Did AJ Brown get hacked? Is this weird performance art? Is the fan going to actually end up getting a signed jersey out of this? This is what happens when Super Bowls are boring. We need more flea-flickers in the 2nd half.
