Dr. Anthony Fauci made the announcement on Thursday explaining that he’s now okay with fully vaccinated people not wearing masks outside. Many people have made that decision on their own, but for those out there still looking for the green light from Dr. Fauci, Thursday’s announcement was a relatively big one.

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley isn’t someone that was waiting on Dr. Fauci’s announcement in order to not wear a mask while outdoors.

Beasley tweeted that he doesn’t bother wearing a mask outside while not being vaccinated. He sarcastically asked if that was illegal given the latest update, taking a dig at Dr. Fauci.

As you would expect, plenty of people came at Beasley in the replies. Mike Tanier, a sportswriter for Football Outsider and the New York Times, decided to take a shot at Beasley suggesting that his behavior of not being vaccinated and not wearing a mask outside would somehow cause a COVID outbreak causing the Bills to miss their entire Super Bowl window.

Tanier coming up with that wild scenario because Beasley isn’t vaccinated and doesn’t wear a mask outdoors should tell you all you need to know about a vast majority of the media out there. Tanier took his swing, but it didn’t connect, Beasley won the battle.

It’s worth noting that Bills GM Brandon Beane recently made a comment saying he’d consider cutting a player that wasn’t vaccinated, and that it would be an ‘advantage’ to be able to do so.

Tanier wasn’t the only one that took a shot at Beasley for his tweet. Here are just a few of the replies that stand out:

Beasley admitting to not wear a mask outside won’t solely be a story on Twitter, many members of the press and certain sports websites will drive this story into the ground while trying to eviscerate the wideout. Given how Beasley has dug his feet into the ground behind his statement, I wouldn’t expect him to cave in and issue some sort of apology, but in today’s world, who knows?
