News broke this afternoon that the NFL is upholding Tom Brady’s four-game suspension for his alleged role in Deflategate.

The NFL also announced that Brady allegedly ordered his assistant to destroy his cell phone “on or around March 6,” the day Brady met with investigator Ted Wells. Brady had allegedly been using the phone since November 2014.

Patriots fans were quick to jump to Brady’s defense.

But according to the NFL, Brady’s alibi — that he always destroys his old phones to protect his privacy — was easily deflated, as the phone he used prior to November 2014 was not destroyed and was available to investigators for review.

Of course, parody Twitter accounts started popping up right away.

And the Internet went into overdrive, with people quickly tracking down every phone-smashing GIF ever created.

Obviously Brady didn’t think to use this excuse.
