Fans react to Mike Ditka’s ‘get a life” comment

In a funny commercial for McDonald’s, former Bears great Mike Ditka dons a Packers sweater. Many Bears fans were offended that Ditka would ever put on the colors of the Bears’ arch-rival.

When asked about it on Tuesday, Ditka said “it’s a commercial” and he doesn’t “have to apologize to anyone.” Ditka said if you were offended by the commercial, then you need to “get a life.”

Fans quickly reacted on social media to Ditka’s response. From a sampling of the posts, most Bears fans are failing to see anything funny about the commercial.

From Chicago Sun-Times Facebook:

Jimmie Farley: So much for Da Coach just insult every die hard Bears fan why don’t ya…hope ya choke on your packers sweater loud mouth!
