Move over, Floyd Mayweather and Justin Bieber! There's a new Twitter king in town.
Earlier this week, we told you about how Packers offensive lineman T.J. Lang fired off a couple of angry tweets after Green Bay got robbed by the Seahawks replacement referees in Seattle on Monday Night Football. As it turns out, we probably didn't even have to tell you about it, though, because one of Lang's tweets actually became the most retweeted post in Twitter history.
"Fuck it NFL," he tweeted, "Fine me and use the money to pay the regular refs."
That tweet was retweeted more than 92,000 times by Wednesday afternoon. As a result, Lang broke the old retweet record that was set by Mayweather earlier this year when he called out Manny Pacquiao. And, the record holder before that was Biebs, who posted the words, "I'M SEXY AND I KNOW IT," back in November 2011 and received more than 87,000 tweets.
Not bad, T.J. You may have lost the game. But, one day you'll be able to tell your grandkids that, for one night, you were cooler than Justin Bieber. Not bad at all.
