DENVER, Jan. 18 (UPI) -- One of the most notorious Pittsburgh Steelers fans probably didn't give the Denver Broncos permission to use his likeness to celebrate its AFC playoff victory.

On Monday, the Denver Broncos official Twitter account trolled the rapper by posting a GIF of him standing with a smirk and toasting, with the caption: "Woke up this morning like..."


The Broncos knocked the Steelers out of the playoffs Sunday night with a 23-16 victory in Denver.

Snoop Dogg did not respond to the subtle jab, but did post a picture of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger Sunday that read: "Great Season, Love ya, Steeler Nation." Snoop Dogg included the caption "10. 7. 26. 84. 92. 50. 94. 23. 34. 48. 97. 91," on the edited photo.

Snoop Dogg kept an active Twitter feed during the game, posting a picture of himself crying after a fourth-quarter fumble by running back Fitzgerald Toussaint.


Calvin Cordozar Broadus Jr., also known as Snoop Dog, was born in Long Beach, CA. Broadas Jr., 44, has said he became a Steelers fan in the 1970's while watching them battle the Oakland Raiders.
