Twitter congratulates wrong Butler on winning Super Bowl, he plays along with it

The man pictured above is Super Bowl-winning cornerback Malcolm Butler, not to be confused with Darius Butler of the Indianapolis Colts

You may know Malcolm Butler as the man who made that dramatic interception that essentially secured the Super Bowl for the New England Patriots.

As you can imagine, Pats fans were absolutely ecstatic over Butler's contribution to the game. So much so that they felt the need to shower him with praise on Twitter. However, some of these suporters really need to pay more attention when congratulating their sporting heroes on Twitter.

You see, a lot of people seemed to think that Darius Butler, the cornerback for the Colts, was the man who made that phenomenal interception. Not that Darius minded though. He seemed to enjoy people thinking he had won the biggest prize in the sport.

At least he saw the funny side of the ridiculous mix-up.
