Internet Reacts to Fake Report of Roger Goodell’s Death on Twitter
Earlier today the NFL’s Twitter account was hacked and the person responsible for the hacking posted a tweet saying the league’s commissioner, Roger Goodell, had passed away.
How did the internet react to this news? Did they mourn the fake passing of the NFL’s Czar? Did they curse the man who was responsible for sharing this false report?
Rather, they joined in on the joke with some hilarious tweets. Here are some of the best:
BREAKING: Tom Brady suspended for upcoming season for admitting he hacked the NFL’s twitter account and said Roger Goodell is dead.

NFL officials are making it notable to mention that Roger Goodell “continues on working”, meaning continues to be hated for $34.1M a year.

Classic pandering Goodell. Death is so in right now so of course he fake dies to get people to like him.
