The Buffalo Bills dominated the Houston Texans on Sunday afternoon but you might not have known that if you listened to chants from the crowd, according to wideout Cole Beasley.
Beasley took to Twitter to vent about fans that he claimed were booing him over his stance on the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Only place I get boo’d is at our home stadium,” his tweet read. “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 unvaxxed?”

The veteran wide receiver has been among the most outspoken players over the league’s stance on vaccination. Over the summer he released a series of tweets and put out a statement specifically taking issue with the NFL’s testing procedures for vaccinated and unvaccinated players and staff.
Beasley replied to users on Twitter who suggested the fans were cheering his name, not booing.
“Some are. Then I got some right behind the bench yelling at me to get vaccinated and talking s—.”
Bills’ guard Jon Feliciano defended Beasley in a tweet, claiming he stopped to sign autographs after the game but was targeted by fans as he left the stadium.
I’d be annoyed to my man took time to sign stuff after the game n as he drives away ppl talk crap about being gettin vax, talking crazy n shit when there’s kids in the car

The Bills announced earlier last month that anyone attending home games must be required to show proof of vaccination if they are older than 12.
