-- Kevin Youkilis is a member of Tom Brady’s family but that doesn’t mean the Patriots are his NFL team of choice. 

Youkilis tweeted on Monday about rooting for the Bengals and was attacked by Patriots fans who said he is “cancelled.”

I have been contemplating turning myself into child protection services for allowing my kids to root for the @Bengals franchise. I think it’s officially neglect! #PleaseSellTheTeam #WhoDey

I’ve officially cancelled Kevin Youkilis for not being a Patriots fan when 1. You played for the Red Sox for quite awhile and 2. TOM BRADY is your brother-in-law https://t.co/yKdk70fHt2

And Youkilis fought back hard with a series of tweets. 

Cancelled??? -- This is what I deal with from @Patriots fans. The same reason I root for @Bengals is the same reason you like the Pats. Childhood team. When they play this year, I will root for family. https://t.co/5i7OqRK4fa

A simple joke about my hometown NFL team the Bengals and somehow Pats fans have been offended or diverted the conversation to all things Patriots. -- pic.twitter.com/DqkvbvExgk

-- Dwayne Haskins is a big Tom Brady fan and showed his appreciation in a tweet on Monday. 

Even though you’re ttun alum @TomBrady it was a pleasure meeting you. Appreciate you for bringing up that I’m undefeated vs that team. Thank you for setting the standard for QB play. -- #GoBucks #HTTR pic.twitter.com/hFaYP1sv9H
