Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid is almost always one of the most popular athletes in the City of Brotherly Love.

Not so much on Thursday.

First, he tweeted his support for the Green Bay Packers at the start of the Philadelphia Eagles' game against the NFC North squad. Then he referenced a fight between teammate Mike Scott and Eagles supporters after Philadelphia notched the 34-27 win:

Scott is a Virginia native and wore a Washington jersey to Lincoln Financial Field prior to a game between the Eagles and his favorite team earlier this year. He found himself surrounded by Philadelphia fans and even threw a punch in the ensuing scuffle, which TMZ shared on video:
