Baker’s comments didn’t sit well with fans who fired back at him on social media.
This has always been one of the dumbest takes from pro athletes. Your job is entertainment. You are showcasing a skill to entertain. That certainly doesn’t warrant hate speech or any form of violence, but shut up with the whining about fans booing. Fans don’t owe you adoration https://t.co/vAzSlgIju0

I’ll tell you what. For 33 million over 4 years he can show up to my job, slap me around, call me whatever he wants, and talk bad about my momma. https://t.co/ckOYisRlQ3

I’ve personally never booed Baker Mayfield, but I will happily invite him or any other NFL player to come boo me at the hospital. Please pay me just 1/10th of your salary. Thanks https://t.co/lgMHAdpFoC
