Are there any informal/slang words in American English that mean something like “make fun of”? For example, let’s say the Patriots lose a Super Bowl (Nothing against them, it is just because that’s the one of the few American football teams I know), and the fans of other teams start to make fun of Patriots fans. What could I say to mean “make fun of”, “joke”?
The patriots lost, and now Patriots fans are being (made fun of) because of that.
What could I say here instead of “made fun of”?
