Look, I was just as excited anyone to see the Philadelphia Eagles win their first Super Bowl Sunday night. But Philly itself is literally been torn apart following the victory, and I am really frickin' confused as to why the celebration entails this sort of destruction.
People yelling “Everything is free,” looting, trashing this gas station. Damn it, Philly we better than this. pic.twitter.com/WecXaAmrFh— Stephanie Farr (@FarFarrAway) February 5, 2018
Stores were overrun with looters, innocent vehicles were flipped in the streets, light poles were ripped from the ground -- it's straight up CrAzY out there right now, you guys.

to celebrate a nice victory in a football game, the city of philadelphia will now riot and parade until it consumes itself in chaos and terror for the next seven days, leaving behind only rubble and blood to be seen for miles when the dust settles.— eddie (@ebciv) February 5, 2018

If this is celebratory, I could only imagine what would of happened if they lost.
So...is Philadelphia still a city this morning? My entire feed is videos and pictures of looting, fire and absolute chaos. I don’t get it. 😑— John Burke (@johnburke) February 5, 2018

WOW: Philadelphia fans are kicking in store windows, throwing bottles at law enforcement, looting gas stations and destroying their city.— Mike Tokes (@MikeTokes) February 5, 2018
Here's proof of at least one relatively mild, vandalism-free celebration.
In light of Philadelphia being torn apart piece by piece, look at how wholesome this celebration was. pic.twitter.com/9kqZWNgiu0— Lauren Kirschman (@laurenkirschman) February 5, 2018
