Eli Apple is one of those cornerbacks in the league that is likely hated by every wideout on every team. The dislike towards him hasn’t been seen since Andre Johnson had to put the Beats By Dre on Cortland Finnegan, who was also widely disliked around the league.
Apple upset some people this week with his relentless trolling of Stefon Diggs after the Bengals defeated the Bills and knocked them out of the playoffs. Apple also trolled Diggs by tweeting “Cancun on 3” and including an emoji that looked like Damar Hamlin’s trademark heart gesture.
Now, Diggs’ brother, Trevon, has something to say about Apple.
“How you running to the internet to troll knowing you not like that? S–t weird,” Trevon Diggs tweeted on Tuesday.
Like Stefon’s team, Trevon and the Cowboys are also headed to Cancun after they go lifted out of the postseason by the 49ers for the second year in a row.
Apple has not addressed Trevon Diggs’ subtweet.
He did, however, issue a statement saying he did not intend to disrespect Hamlin with his emoji usage in the Cancun tweet.
“All love thoughts prayers and concerns to @HamlinIsland as he continues to recover from that tragic incident. Never would I make light of that scary unfortunate scene,” Apple said. “This game is truly a dangerous risk to our bodies mind and spirit. Nothing but love to all my football brothers.”
