It is quite the clash of the titans: Marshawn Lynch vs Donald Trump.
But the battle now has a new player, Marshawn Lynch’s Mum (Mom for our US readers).
Marshawn Lynch vs Donald Trump
Marshawn Lynch infuriated Donald Trump earlier in the week when he sat during the US National Anthem ahead of the Raiders’ game against the Patriots at Azteca Stadium in Mexico City.
Trump was livid and jumped on Twitter calling for Lynch to be suspended for the season.
Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.

In true Beastmode style Lynch has remained quiet in the aftermath of Trump’s comments.
Momma Lynch steps in
But Marshawn’s Mum Delisa Lynch didn’t hold back. Momma Lynch did what all Mum’s do, she went in to bat for her son.
She didn’t hold back either ripping into Trump on Twitter.

Momma Lynch is of course referring to Trump’s turbulent relationship with the NFL. And the fact he missed out when he tried to buy the Bills in 2014. He didn’t take it too well at the time…
Support for the Lynch family
Mrs Lynch’s Tweet has received widespread praise on Twitter.
Another person who has stepped into Beast Mode’s corner is Snoop Dogg.
Snoop delivered this brutal response to Trump’s criticism of Lynch.
