On Wednesday, Tate attempted to clear the air regarding his hat of choice, and his feelings towards Trump. 

Is this a joke? We 100% did not wear MAGA hats our wedding weekend in Mexico for our wedding. And I 100000000000% don't support trump.

Especially after all those poor performances at the debates.I did wear a hat about a year ago at a golf tourney at trump national. That's it

This past weekend Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate got married. And while he's shared a photo from the special day on Instagram, a different photo of the NFL vet sporting a Make America Great Again hat, along with some lesser critiqued shorts, is causing an uproar on social media.

Note that the photo is from 41+ weeks ago:

And also note that in the past he's tweeted stuff like this:

Dang Obama out.. Thank you for a great 8 years prez.

Nevertheless, some Twitter users weren't pleased with his choice of cap, which in turn led to them dragging Tate and even getting in some Get Out references. For example:

Always here for more reasons to hate Golden Tate

I personally think that Golden Tate wearing the MAGA hat is a joke. But if It's not, that's disappointing.
