Brock Purdy has a passing resemblance to the man who assassinated John F. Kennedy — something he was asked about this week ahead of the Super Bowl … and it was awkward.
The 49ers QB was made aware of comparisons people have been floating lately between himself and Lee Harvey Oswald — who, of course, killed JFK in 1963 using a sniper rifle. He’s one of the most infamous people in American history … and BP kinda looks like him.
During a press conference Tuesday, Brock had the question posed to him — namely, was he aware folks have been calling him an Oswald look-alike? Unsurprisingly, he said he wasn’t.
When Brock denied any knowledge about it, he was asked the obvious follow-up … what do you make of the comparison? His response is funny — you can tell he’s at a loss for words.
It’s probably not the greatest feeling knowing you’re a bit of a dead ringer for the man responsible for murdering a U.S. president … and Brock’s stammering here reflects that.
The dude already had a lot on his mind right — y’know, on account of the fact that he’s gotta try and lead his team to a win on Sunday in the biggest game of the year — and now … he’s got this weird connection to LHO that’s been concocted by the Twitter-sphere. Not great!
The Internet … it never ceases to fail in ridiculousness. 😒
