Bills Player Threatens Eli Apple: “Disrespect Hamlin, That Gets You Beat Up”

Written by Tony Ghaul

Buffalo Bills WR Stefon Diggs took to Twitter on Monday evening to tweet his thoughts on Sunday’s playoff loss. He admitted he was frustrated during and after the game but he will not back down from showing that emotion. He said the Bills did not play up to their standards.

Bengals CB Eli Apple, who is notoriously famous for troll tweets and trash talking, tweeted at Diggs and Josh Allen on Monday night. Apple’s tweets didn’t sit well with Bills fans but one tweet in particular was the one that went viral.

It appears to make fun of Diggs and the Damar Hamlin medical situation.








That tweet caught the attention of and angered Bills DE Shaq Lawson. He responded on Tuesday, tweeting at Apple that if he disrespects Damar Hamlin, “that sh*t will get you beat up for real.”

Apple’s tweet crossed the line and I don’t think we have seen the last of Bills players responding to him on social media. He may have now created a distraction for him and the Bengals going into their AFC Championship game on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs.
