Macaulay Culkin tweets insult at Baker Mayfield and the city of Cleveland

The Home Alone star tweeted in reaction to someone saying that Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield looked like one of the “Wet Bandits" robbers in the film.

CLEVELAND — On Tuesday’s Lunch Break with Jay Crawford, we chewed over actor Macauley Culkin coming at the entire city of Cleveland on Twitter in a post aimed at Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

On Monday night, Home Alone star Culkin wanted to make a different kind of statement, tweeting a stab at the people of The Land in reaction to someone saying that Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield looked like one of the “Wet Bandits” robber characters from the film.

At first, Culkin made a joke and shared a picture of himself with a bucket of paint (like his character used in the movie to beat the robbers), writing: “I'm ready for you #BAKERMAYFIELD ... Come at me, bro.”

But then, Culkin followed it up writing: “Actually... He doesn't look like the wet bandits. #BakerMayFieldLooksLike a dude who's been living in Cleveland for the past two years.”

Not surprisingly, no one in Cleveland was happy about it.
