Bears legend Dick Butkus retired from the game of football and transitioned into acting and sports commentating. Now the Hall of Famer can add being verified to Twitter on his long list of accomplishments and his first order of business was to rip Aaron Rodgers.
As said by the man himself, he is using his new blue checkmark to kick people off the platform. He started off with the Packers quarterback who has been kryptonite to the Bears in recent years.
"Now that I have the blue mark I can kick people off of the platform right you hear me @AaronRodgers12, Butkus said on his Twitter account Friday afternoon.
Then out of nowhere, Butkus absolutely roasts a fan of his who said he's still wearing a jersey that he has from his childhood and still being able to fit in it.
For a man that was as ruthless of a linebacker as there was on the gridiron, it seems like he's transitioned that mentality over to social media. Looking forward to seeing what Butkus has in store for us on the platform in the future.
