Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins had time before his game on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. As he drove past a full caravan of President Donald Trump supporters on Arizona’s I-10 highway, the all-pro apparently gave them two middle fingers as he drove by in his Ferrari.

Twitter exploded with photos of the Clemson alum, with a few Trump supporters accusing the NFL star of recklessly driving his Ferrari alongside the caravan by weaving in and out of the line.
@DeAndreHopkins My 8 yr old son was in one of the cars you were swerving in and out of as you were disrupting the PHX Trump Train drive and trying to cause an accident. You're a piece of trash. Make your political statements, but you out people at risk today. @espn @AZCardinals pic.twitter.com/7tAuuyM5Or

@AZCardinals this is one of your own Deandre Hopkins flipping off people. Apparently weaving in and out of traffic during a Trump rally. Maybe he can set the example as a public figure and let people exercise their 1st amendment right. Great behavior from a Cardinal. pic.twitter.com/NgIzvmyrL2

One woman decided to call Hopkins a “TURD.”
Recognize him? #NFL player Deandre Hopkins. He was spotted about an hour ago in the Phoenix area (prob on his way to the stadium)cutting off people in the Trump caravan and trying to run them off the road. All while he’s yelling and flipping people off. Oh the OPPRESSION! #TURD pic.twitter.com/WtGEP1O70d

However, many people either became Hopkins fans or solidified their fandom after his alleged act.

Arizona’s Department of Public Safety, the NFL, nor the Cardinals organization has released a statement about the incident. He would amass 103 yards on 10 catches to lead Arizona to an overtime win over the Seahawks.
The 28-year-old was traded to the Cardinals from the Houston Texans in March for oft-injured David Johnson and a future second-round pick.
Already one of the game’s elite talents, @AndrewLeezus is ready to take Hopkins’ greatness a step further.
