Bears legend Dick Butkus takes shot at Aaron Rodgers in hilarious tweet

A new (and unlikely) king appears to have emerged in the NFL Twitterverse.

Retired Chicago Bears legend Dick Butkus took a funny shot at Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers in a tweet Friday. Butkus was recently verified with a blue checkmark on Twitter and celebrated by clowning Rodgers.

“now that i have the blue mark i can kick people off of the platfrom [sic] right,” wrote Butkus. “you hear me @AaronRodgers12”

Butkus added a couple of other hilarious tweets too about getting verified. He asked where his sponsorship money and free meals were. Butkus also apologized to Packers fans who thought he was trending because he died.

The 79-year-old Butkus is one of the greatest Bears ever. He played his entire career in Chicago, winning two Defensive Player of the Year Awards and making eight All-Pro teams. Even nearly five decades after he retired, Butkus is proving that he is still a Bear to the bone by dissing the Packers.

As for kicking Rodgers off Twitter, it might not be a bad idea. The veteran quarterback is known for posting some gross content on the site at times.
