Just before his first starting game of the season on Thursday, former adult film star Mia Khalifa posted a happy birthday message to Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson on Twitter.
The seven-second video shows the two playing Nerf basketball, and Watson playfully blocking Khalifa’s dunk.

The message appeared to be a harmless one between friends, but some Texans fans interpreted it differently, commenting everything from “He’s my favorite quarterback ever now,” to “Not today, Satan.”

For the record, hanging out with Mia Khalifa before his big game didn’t appear to have any negative affect on the QB’s abilities. In fact, it looked to be the opposite, as the Texans won last night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals 13-9.
