Domonique Foxworth is feeling the backlash of his comments this week.
The former football player turned analyst was a guest on ESPN podcast “The Right Time with Bomani Jones” and talked about how happy he gets when Josh Allen fails, because of his fan base.
“I am fully aware that I have biases. And my biases are not based on Josh Allen. It’s based on the people that are defending Josh Allen. I would be 100 percent lying if I said that when Josh does something dumb, a little part of me doesn’t get happy. And it’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed,” Foxworth said.
“It’s because the people who are telling me that Josh is the second coming and Josh is better than everybody are people with American flags and dogs and skulls and crossbones. … If you go just take a dip into their tweet history, it’s some really concerning retweets and likes. … It’s not about Josh,” he concluded.
On Wednesday, a few Bills players took to Twitter and called him out for his words.
“Hold up bruh…we not jus letting this slide, yeah?! @espn this what we on now in the sports world!? @Foxworth24 we gotta do better my brother… cause this ain’t it”
“ay @Foxworth24 are you talking about the fans that just raise over 700k for a hospital during a pandemic? Ppl do/say the corniest things to try n get ahead”
Foxworth has not spoken out about his original comments as of this writing.
