Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant had himself quite the interesting afternoon against Detroit. The star hauled in three receptions for 72 yards and two scores, including a spectacular one-handed touchdown reception.
His day on the field, however, will be overshadowed by his meltdown off of it. Bryant threw not one, but two tantrums on the sidelines, screaming at quarterback Tony Romo, tight end Jason Whitten, and his coaches.
Fans took to Twitter in reaction to the hotheaded talent’s day.

Dez Bryant should take Brian Fantana’s advice. Stop talking for awhile, take a couple of plays off.

They should bring those “Anything you can do I can do better” commercials back so Dez Bryant can cry more cause he isn’t as good as Johnson
— Sad #Phins Fan (@TristanHill3) October 27, 2013
Man Calvin Johnson was targeted way more than dez Bryant. Mathew Stanford had time to get da ball to Johnson than Romo had

Dez Bryant catch was nice & all, but Calvin Johnson just had the SECOND best reviving game in NFL history.

“@DeadEndSports: I wonder if Dez Bryant regrets comparing himself to Calvin Johnson” he should

Most great receivers be having attitude problems like OchoCinco, Terrell Owens, Brandon Marshall, and Dez Bryant but they all put up numbers

Dez Bryant should stay quiet for the rest of his career
— Muhammad Mehdi (@mmehdi771) October 27, 2013
I refuse to concede to the twitter notion that Andrew luck and Dez Bryant are the greatest to ever step on the field. Grow up, twitter.

I dunno who is worse TTU fans or Dez Bryant defenders. Wow. Retards.

After today’s game, there should NEVER be a Dez Bryant/Calvin Johnson debate. Megatron proved why he’s the best WR in the game today.
— Randy Cruz (@cruzr83) October 27, 2013
“@NatePlay60: Calvin Johnson is Dez Bryant’s mom’s favorite player.” Wow! :/

#Lions just served me 20 ounces of ice cold Shut The F*** Up! Why are Dez Bryant & Jason Witten arguing boot the greatness of Ciara & JoJo?

Cowboys fans don’t only wear Dez Bryant jerseys, they cry like him as well.

Just goes to show the scared dog barks loudest. Dez Bryant runs his mouth, megatron goes on about his business. Megatron the victor.
— Tyler R Hutcheson (@MrHutcheybaby) October 27, 2013
I almost feel bad for the rest of the cowboys having to be teammates with Dez Bryant. Serious talent, but serious attitude problems
— Andrew Gordon (@alldayAG) October 27, 2013
Dez Bryant is beginning to be a diva like TO

And Dez Bryant might put hands on somebody on the way back. Should be an interesting flight home tonight.

I’m as angry as Dez Bryant is right now

@TimCowlishaw Dez Bryant has accomplished the impossible…made TO look like a team player.

I am 100% sure that EVERYONE can stop comparing Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant after today’s game.
— omar hagi™ (@Omarhagi52) October 27, 2013
I’ll be getting rid of this Dez Bryant jersey when I get some money. I don’t want to rep someone that selfish. That’s pathetic.

Meanwhile on Detroit’s sidelines, Matthew Stafford and Calvin Johnson are celebrating both a victory and the second-most prolific receiving day in NFL history.
