The Philadelphia Eagles won their first Super Bowl yesterday, beating the New England Patriots 41-33. It was a victory that has been a long time coming for the City of Brotherly Love, and the streets were filled with rejoicing fans immediately after the game was called.

There was also an underlying political element to the matchup. The Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady is known for his close relationship with Donald Trump, meaning a lot of people were rooting for the Eagles out of an oblique dislike of the president.

Torrey Smith, a wide receiver for the Eagles, previously stated that he would not visit the White House if his team won the championship. Traditionally, the winning team is welcomed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to celebrate its victory alongside the sitting president.

Smith has drawn issue with Trump’s repeated insistence that NFL players stand for the anthem. Many players have been taking a knee to draw attention to police brutality towards people of color in America. Trump has taken to reprimanding these players in public and via his Twitter account,

“They call it the anthem protest. We’re not protesting the anthem. It’s a protest during the anthem. I understand why people are mad, or may be offended when someone takes a knee,” Smith said previously, according to NJ.com.

This morning, Smith took to Twitter to celebrate his historic victory. He tweeted out a GIF with the caption “Reading the tweets from the last week from all the Trump supporters destroying my mentions saying, “You gotta win before you even get invited to the White House.”

Presumably, Smith had received a lot of backlash for his announcement that he wouldn’t visit the White House, with Twitter users piling on him to accuse him of being presumptuous. Now that he’s won, Smith can officially decline the White House invite, and take a stand for what he believes in.

Smith interacted with some users after sending out the initial tweet.

Add your name to millions demanding Congress take action on the President’s crimes. IMPEACH TRUMP & PENCE!

Congratulations to Smith, and good on him for using his platform to push back against the Trump administration.
