Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins is apologizing for his harsh words at fans last week. Watkins referred to fans criticizing him as “losers” and and told them to “continue working y’all little jobs for the rest of y’all lives.”
Watkins said he was wrong for his statements and stated the following:
“I just read back on my comments like, ‘Nah, that don’t sound right. I shouldn’t have sent that because it not only affected the fans, just people in general that are working hard jobs every day, day to day, taking care of their kids, every job is the same. You wake up in the morning and go to work, clock the eight hours, so my job is the same as anybody else.
Like I said, I knew what I was doing taking a shot, but it’s something I shouldn’t have did as a football player and a professional. It wasn’t professional. I’ll learn from it.”
Chances of fans forgiving Watkins? “Losers” currently sitting at their “little jobs” are leaning towards no.
