Marshawn Lynch wasn’t really a man of the people Tuesday afternoon at Super Bowl Media Day. Beast Mode rolled into the event with a hoodie and sunglasses on, looking more like a stoned dude chillin’ at Huddle House than a potential Super Bowl MVP dealing with the press.
NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders eventually caught up with Lynch and got more face time with him than any other media member. What resulted was a bizarre two-minute interview that produced numerous one-liners, and some real talk from Lynch.
Afterwards, fans and media were ’bout that action on Twitter. Here are some of the top reactions to the interview.

For as cartoonish as “Beast Mode” has become, Marshawn Lynch doesn’t act like he’s anything else than an Applebees-lovin’ dude from Oakland.

He shows up to #SB48 media day but leaves after 6 minutes. That’s the Marshawn Lynch we know and love!
