On September 16, 2010, Frankie Muniz gave Twitter one hell of a treat when he decided to respond to a hater who voiced their displeasure with the acting abilities of the former child star with one of the greatest clapbacks you’ll ever see.

It’s been more than a decade since the Malcolm in the Middle star woke up and chose violence, but that reply remains one of the best chirps someone has ever issued to a critic who decided to hop into their mentions.

Now, we’ve been treated to a worthy successor courtesy of retired NFL quarterback Matt Flynn.

If that name doesn’t ring a bell, you’re probably not alone; I feel like most football fans have probably forgotten about the former LSU QB who was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the seventh round of the 2008 NFL Draft to kick off an unremarkable pro career that came to an end after he played eight seasons with seven different teams.

On Monday, Flynn (who hasn’t taken a snap in the NFL since 2015) reacted to the recent spike in cases that has laid waste to rosters across the NFL by joking about training for a potential return to football.

After posting the tweet, Flynn found himself on the receiving end of a largely unsolicited jab from a fan who reference the three-year, $20.5 million contract he signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2012—a deal that he never came close to living up to.

However, Flynn was still able to walk away with at least $9 million in guaranteed money as a result, and he wasn’t shy about letting the hater know he remembers the contract very, very well.
