Eli Apple getting roasted on social media is the ultimate karma in the end

For three weeks, Eli Apple ran his mouth. And on Super Bowl Sunday, his big mouth wrote checks he couldn’t cash.

Cooper Kupp burned him for the game-winning touchdown in the Los Angeles Rams 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl 56.

Since the end of the game, social media has absolutely burned Apple for being the burnt apple toast that he was in the game.

Who wants some burnt apples now with their burnt toast?
