‘I thought Bills fans were the best in the world?’ Receiver Cole Beasley claims fans booed him over vax stance

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC)— Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley is calling out fans who he says booed him during Sunday home game against the Houston Texans.

In a Tweet Monday, Beasley said "Only place I get boo’d is at our home stadium. Then some of the same people want me to take pictures and sign autographs. I thought Bills fans were the best in the world? Where’d they go? If the vaccine works then why do vaxxed people need to be protected from un-vaxxed?"

Beasley has faced criticism for speaking out against the COVID-19 vaccine, and his decision not to get vaccinated. The National Football League has warned teams they could forfeit a game due to a COVID outbreak among non-vaccinated players, and players on both teams would not get paid that week.

In a follow-up Tweet, the wideout acknowledged some fans did cheer "Beeeease" but claims other fans yelled at him to get the vaccine. He followed that Tweet with a series of responses, mostly defending his stance.

Bills Head Coach Sean McDermott didn’t have much of a reaction to Cole Beasley’s Twitter activity during a press conference Monday.

He just said, “I love our fan support. I think our fans have been tremendous."

When asked where the team is at with its vaccination rate compared to the beginning of the year, McDermott mentioned that the rate has improved. However, he said he didn’t know by how much.

Doctors say a majority of new cases are in people who are unvaccinated, though there have been some breakthrough cases.
