One of the six New England Patriots players who announced his intentions not to join the team at a White House ceremony honoring the Super Bowl champions later this year shot back at his critics on Twitter this Thursday.

Chris Long, a defensive lineman for the champion Patriots, fired off a series of Tweets with his responses to some of the messages he’s received over the past week.

Long is one of four Patriots team members who have given political reasons for not attending the ceremony. Two others have not specifically attributed their decision to politics. A seventh player — James White, who scored the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl — says he’s on the fence.
