Many people were cheering for the Kansas City Chiefs during Super Bowl LV. Not because they were Chiefs fans, and not because they didn’t like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They wanted KC to win because they wanted, more than anything else, for Tom Brady to lose.
Probably more than any other modern-day athlete, people despise Tom Brady (a quick Google search will show you just how much). In the days leading up to the Super Bowl, social media got vicious with its anti-Brady commentary, and that has a way of trickling down to the way football fans look at the team and its brand. The question is, would someone launch a cyberattack against a football team just because they dislike Tom Brady that much? You better believe it is possible, particularly in the current environment we are living in.
