Richard Sherman is a notorious trash-talker.
In kind, he attracts a lot of attention when things don’t go his way on the football field.
Most notably, the San Francisco 49ers cornerback got beat deep in man coverage by Sammy Watkins on a 38-yard pass play late in the game.

Three plays later, he failed to come up with a tackle as Damien Williams scored the go-ahead, decisive touchdown for the Chiefs.
Darrelle Revis chimes in
For that, Twitter had a field day. Especially on the heels of Sherman’s public beef with Darrelle Revis after the retired cornerback criticized Sherman’s man coverage abilities.
Revis led the social media charge Sunday night, popping up on Twitter after the game knowing people were watching.
Are y’all waiting for the flame 🔥? 😂😂😂
— Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) February 3, 2020
He also retweeted this meme imagining his joy in the situation.

But Revis was far from the only one reveling in Sherman’s misfortune.

Sherman, meanwhile, stayed out of the fray with a somber Twitter post of his own.
Proud of this team! Wasn’t the result we wanted but we battled through. I wasn’t good enough tonight and I will fix that. Thank you for all the support all year.

It was a tough night for Sherman at the Super Bowl. And thanks to his penchant for making noise, it made for a rough night on social media.
