Cole Beasley rips Bills fans for reaction to COVID vax stance

Cole Beasley voiced his frustrations with Bills fans after the team’s dominant win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Beasley was booed on Sunday by fans at Highmark Stadium, presumably due to his controversial stance on the COVID-19 vaccine. Beasley, who has been outspoken in his comments on the vaccine, has insisted that he is “pro-choice” on the issue despite backlash from fans and colleagues. Bills home games requires guests to have at least one dose of the COVID-19 shot before attending.

The tension between the wide receiver — who has said he is unvaccinated — and Bills fans grew on Monday when the NFL star aired his grievances on social media. In a series of tweets, he called out fans who booed him before asking for a photo or autograph in the same afternoon.

The tweet garnered hundreds of replies from fans. Bills beat reporter Matt Parrino suggested that he confused the fans chanting a nickname for booing, but Beasley said he wasn’t mistaken.

Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban had a rebuttal for the 32-year-old as well, calling some of Beasley’s reasons for refusing the vaccine “questionable” during a Twitter exchange. Beasley referenced breakthrough cases in the NFL.

“They can get covid from a vaccinated person,” Beasley wrote. “There are plenty examples of that throughout the NFL.”

Cuban referenced his own experience as a business owner navigating the challenges of a pandemic in a final tweet to Beasley. However, the Bills star is convinced the vaccine mandates expunge the public’s right to choose.

It’s unclear Beasley was approached for an autograph by the same fans who booed him, but the NFL star is clearly unhappy with Bills fans.
