The New York Jets were already having a terrible 2019 campaign, but it got that much worse when the team gave the winless Miami Dolphins their first victory of the year.
Naturally, Jets fans were upset and criticized the team for their performance. That was more than enough for Darryl Roberts, because he would soon take to Instagram and blast the fan base.
“I’m sorry but it gotta be said!” Roberts wrote on his Instagram story following Sunday’s loss. “All y’all fake ass fans fucking kill me with that negative shit, if you rock wit us then rock wit us but if you ain’t then shut tf up please & go like another team. And another thing y’all stop @’n players talking crazy becus y’all know dam well you wouldn’t buss a grape in a fruit fight.”
Once his post hit Twitter, Roberts would respond to NJ Advance Media reporter Matt Stypulkoski who captioned his post as if Roberts was not happy with the entire fan base.
“Nah I love the loyal fans, stop putting words in my mouth,” he said in response to Stypulkoski.
The frustration is real and evident when head coach Adam Gase took the podium after the game. “We’re 1-7,” Gase said. “You feel like crap. You don’t put in all this time and effort to come out here and lose.”
