Brian Kelly roasted as video of fake Southern accent goes viral
Brian Kelly is getting savagely trolled for his “new” accent.
The new LSU football coach addressed fans at the Tigers’ Wednesday night basketball game. A portion of Kelly’s address is now going viral on Twitter. In the 41-second clip, Kelly appears to be trying to speak in a Southern accent.
