Lions QB Brad Kaaya's mom was the infamous Felisha in movie 'Friday'

"Bye, Felisha."

Brad Kaaya was selcted by the Lions in the sixth round of last week's NFL Draft, but it turns out he isn't the only famous member of his family.

Kaaya's mother, Angela Means Kaaya, had a small acting part in the Ice Cube cult classic "Friday" as Felisha, a notorious bum and mooch.

It's where the widely popular line "bye Felisha" became an iconic insult, and the rest was history.

But according to Kaaya, he didn't realize how popular the line was until he left Los Angeles — where he grew up — to play football at the University of Miami.

“For me, she basically just made a 15-minute cameo in a movie that happened to be a famous movie, but in Los Angeles, there are a lot of other things going on and there’s a lot of different types of people you see,” Kaaya said, via ESPN. “So, it wasn’t really a big deal until I pretty much left California for Florida.”

For Kaaya, the famous line Ice Cube's character said simply wasn't part of his lexicon. The movie premiered several months before he was born, so it didn't have the same impact on him that it did for people from their late 20s and upward.

He said he has only seen the movie a couple of times, and that he views Means Kaaya as a "team mom and a vegan chef."

“It’s just really been about football. I’ve never really seen her in that kind of light,” Kaaya said. “She was more so my team mom growing up.”

Means Kaaya also had several small roles and appeared in "Hangin' with Mr. Cooper," "In Living Color," "House Party 3," "The Cherokee Kid" and "Cousin Skeeter," but she will always be the inspiration behind on the the best '90s lines.
