Lynch said on his own Twitter feed he "accidentally and unknowingly" liked the tweet about Garoppolo. And what's more -- it happened during Christmas Eve mass with his family, Lynch explained.
"Never intended to [like the tweet] and remain a huge believer in Jimmy," Lynch said in Friday night's post.
Apparently - while in Christmas Eve Mass w my Family - I accidentally and unknowingly Liked a Tweet. Never intended to and remain a huge believer in Jimmy. Merry Christmas to everyone.— John Lynch (@JohnLynch49ers) December 25, 2021
The Twitter misstep comes after Garoppolo completed 26-of-35 passes for 322 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's 20-17 loss to the Titans. He also threw two interceptions which played a factor in the loss.
Lynch and the 49ers acquired Garoppolo from the New England Patriots in 2017 for a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. In February of 2018, San Francisco signed the quarterback to a five-year, $137.5 million contract extension.
