New Orleans Saints defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson tagged Microsoft in a cheeky tweet directed at Tom Brady, and the tech company joined in on the fun.

Allegiance-wise, we’re not sure which team Microsoft supports. The company is headquartered in Washington, so if anything they would probably be Seattle Seahawks fans.

Still, they probably weren’t enthused when they saw Tom Brady throwing one of their Surface tablets on the ground in frustration during Week 15’s game.

When Gardner-Johnson brought the incident up on Twitter, Microsoft decided to step in.

Here’s what the company had to say:

Microsoft tweets back at New Orleans Saints’ C.J. Gardner-Johnson

There was an opportunity, and Microsoft took advantage of it. Simple as that.

Kudos to Microsoft for playing along with Gardner-Johnson’s ribbing. We think the company’s social media team deserves a raise.

As sassy as the tweet sounds, Microsoft also gives some credit to the GOAT himself, reminding Twitter that Brady holds the league record for career completions.

Brady hardly looked like his usual self last Sunday, though, partly due to the Tampa offense missing Chris Godwin, Mike Evans, and Leonard Fournette.

Fans are still in shock over one of the biggest upsets of the season as New Orleans’ D held Brady to 214 passing yards and no touchdowns.

Oh, and there was one interception, too. The interception that followed the first, back when Gardner-Johnson talked about rescuing a “baby GOAT.” Well, Gardner-Johnson got himself another against the adult GOAT and he wants everyone — football fans, players, tech companies — to know.
