Many celebrity fans were crushed when the Atlanta Falcons lost Super Bowl LI to the New England
Patriots Sunday and they shared their hurt on social media.

During the showdown, the Falcons had a 28-3 lead over the Patriots by the third quarter, virtually guaranteeing a victory. But Tom Brady’s team ultimately snatched the Lombardi Trophy in a 34-28 overtime win, leading to a stunning loss for the Atlanta team.

Falcons fans including Bow Wow, 2Chainz and Questlove all took to Twitter and Instagram to react to the upset for Matt Ryan’s NFC champions.

Bow Wow went from feeling confident…

…to feeling like the loss affected him personally.

Gucci tweeted a Biblical response after expressing some disappointment.

Questlove likened the feeling to Donald Trump’s presidential victory.

T.I. nodded to Brady’s 2015 Deflategate scandal as a possible reason for the team’s win.

2Chainz hoped for a better outcome next year and hailed Super Bowl LI as “the best game ever.”

Music artists weren’t the only ones feeling down. Actors who supported the Dirty Birds also expressed their thoughts.

Samuel L. Jackson excitedly tweeted for the Falcons…

…and looked forward to the start of the 2017 season when they lost.

Sterling K. Brown, who stars in the upcoming “Black Panther” movie, said he was pleased with the way the game was going…

There were other well-known football fans who decided to give credit to the AFC champions’ big win. It led Brady to set several NFL records, including five Super Bowl rings, which retired Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant spoke to.

Singer Jordin Sparks put the 51st Super Bowl high on her list of the best games she’s attended.
