Like literally millions of people, LeSean McCoy was very excited to see Avengers: Endgame this weekend.

It's good to be an NFL star, though. On Friday, the day the movie opened in theaters, McCoy posted images on social media of him watching the movie on what seems to be on a personal TV alongside his young son.

McCoy and his son, who he calls "Lil' Shady," were excited. He posted shots of them watching the movie on his Instagram stories.

Unfortunately for McCoy's 734,000 Twitter followers and half a million Instagram followers, the athlete was so upset by the ending he shared his feelings about it.

In the process... he revealed a MAJOR spoiler. Like, basically the biggest moment of the movie.

WARNING: DO NOT CLICK ON THESE UNLESS YOU WANT TO READ THIS MASSIVE AVENGERS: ENDGAME SPOILER.

And he kept tweeting.

He kept going...not only posting a spoiler in an Instagram caption, but then repeating it over and over in an Instagram video.

In doing so, he did huge damage to a campaign started by the film's directors, the Russo brothers, who earlier this month tried to stop people from spoiling the movie for other fans.

It even had its own hashtag: #DontSpoilTheEndgame.

People were PISSED.

lesean mccoy: spoils avengers endgame his mentions:

Like, really, really, mad.

I WANT EVERY DEFENSIVE PLAYER IN THE NFL TO DESTROY LESEAN MCCOY EVERY GAME NEXT SEASON!!! I EXPECT NOTHING LESS!!!

Even worse, McCoy got his spelling wrong, so his tweets even evaded those who set up spoiler traps online.

Honestly I’m just laughing because I muted the first and last names of every avenger but LeSean McCoy can’t spell so I got the movie spoiled anyway. That ones on me.

If you don't want to see any #AvengersEngame spoilers and wondering why LeSean McCoy is trending and why he is a Buffalo Bill, DO NOT LOOK AT HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT LIKE I DID! #ruined

People are now calling for him to be suspended from the NFL for his actions.

The NFL should suspend LeSean McCoy for the entire 2019 NFL season for spoiling Avengers: Endgame. I hope the Bills don’t win a single game this season.

So LeSean McCoy is intentionally posting spoilers to Endgame. Good to know. The Eagles made the right decision trading him. 😐

Or for him to be suspended from Twitter.

Twitter coming together to shit on LeSean McCoy for spoiling Endgame is beautiful and powerful. @Twitter DO THE RIGHT THING AND SUSPEND THIS MAN.

Of course, some people were impressed/horrified.

in awe of LeSean McCoy. not only did he spoil Avengers, he did it in a way that evades muted terms. truly remarkable work. my god.

And the jokes were top notch.

“Why would you spoil the Avengers movie?? There are a lot of people who haven’t seen it!!!” LeSean McCoy:

Once was not enough!

lesean mccoy tweeted out the ending of endgame TWICE lmfaooooooooo

Oh wow.

So far, McCoy has left all his social media posts up.

His team, the Bills, didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
