Columnist Pleads With Cole Beasley To ‘Stop Embarrassing Buffalo’ With His Disdain With Vaccine (TWEETS)
Cole Beasley said that he does not plan to receive a COVID-19 vaccine and threatened to defy league protocol for players amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
“Hi, I’m Cole Beasley and I’m not vaccinated,” the wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills shared in a statement on Twitter on Friday. “I will be outside doing what I do. I’ll be out in the public. If your scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period.”
“I may die of covid, but I’d rather die actually living. I have family members whose days are numbered. If they want to come see me and stay at my house then they are coming regardless of protocol,” he added.
Media columnist Margaret Sullivan of the Washington Post took to Twitter and blasted the NFL WR for the things he said.
“Stop embarrassing Buffalo”
The NFL and the NFL Players Association agreed to new COVID-19 guidance that will allow vaccinated players to eat meals as a team, leave hotels when traveling to interact with fans and others, go to media activities, and use saunas and steam rooms.
Players who choose not to get vaccinated will not be allowed to participate in any of those activities. They will also have to get tested for COVID-19 daily, abide by social distancing guidelines and wear masks.
