Eli Apple states he was NOT attempting to diss Damar Hamlin on Twitter after the Bengals beat the Bills on Sunday … declaring he would never ever play down the Buffalo security’s medical emergency situation.
The tweet in concern came late Monday night … when the 6-year NFL cornerback quote tweeted Stefon Diggs‘ post resolving his feelings after the video game.
“Cancun on 3,” Apple responded in the tweet … ending it with a hand heart emoji.
Many thought the emoji was a referral to Hamlin, who has actually been understood to do the heart hands throughout his profession … and most just recently, following his in-game collapse on Jan. 2.
In truth, the 24-year-old security made the gesture throughout the divisional round match while being in the Highmark Stadium suite.
Hamlin’s colleague, Shaq Lawson, called Apple out on it… stating the disrespect will not be endured and “that s*** get you beat up frfr. Keep it on the field.”
