The image teased the Jacksonville Jaguars after they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

It showed Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes eating waffles with head coach Andy Reid.

In the background, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence – who was dressed like an employee of the restaurant – looked dejected as he cleared up the chairs.

Craig captioned his post: “Mean but funny.”

Al, 68, didn’t seem to appreciate the joke and was quick to comment: “Ouch.”

Fans shared his disapproval and flooded the comments to slam Craig’s “spiteful” and “out-of-character” post.

Hours later, Al said he was feeling “crazy” as he shared a photo of himself looking angry and animated while in mid-conversation on the Today show.

The beloved weatherman captioned it: “Proud to be America’s #crazyuncle.”

Al recently returned to the Today show following months of health complications.

He was absent for two months while recovering from blood clots in his lungs and legs.

Over the weekend, Al and his wife, Deborah Robertshad an emotional goodbye with their son, Nick, as they drove him back to school for his spring semester.

Deborah shared a selfie of them smiling in the car as Al drove and their 20-year-old son Nick sat in the backseat.

“Holidays and 2022 are officially over for this clan,” Deborah, 62, wrote.

“Don’t be fooled by the smiles,” she added with a crying emoji.

Nick is Deborah and Al’s youngest child. They also share a daughter together – Leila, 24.

Al has another daughter, Courtney, 35, from a previous relationship.
