Mark Wahlberg is about as Boston you can get if you’re an actor, right up there with the likes of Ben Affleck, and he’s expressed plenty of support for the New England Patriots. He was at Super Bowl LI Sunday in Houston to cheer them on, and was decked out in Patriots’ gear, as can be seen in the above photo of him with New England receiver Danny Amendola. President Donald Trump is not from Boston, but also has plenty of ties to the Patriots, including friendships with owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady, and he also made it clear Sunday he was rooting for New England.

Both are now getting roasted on social media for either leaving the Super Bowl in Houston early (Wahlberg) or their special Super Bowl viewing party at their own golf course (Trump) before the Patriots’ comeback began.

Let’s start with Wahlberg. His roast began with this tweet:

And then came the hot takes and insults.

While Trump wasn’t at the game physically like Wahlberg, he was watching the game at his swanky golf course and at his own party. But as we also mentioned, he decided to leave early.

The Patriots wound up pulling off the largest comeback in Super Bowl history, beating the Falcons 34-28 in the first Super Bowl game to go to overtime. Wahlberg and Trump may have given up on watching them, but it’s a good thing the team didn’t give up.
