The first seven weeks of the 2015-16 NFL season have been frustrating for Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins. Leg injuries have prevented him from playing in three of his team’s seven games, and he has only managed to catch 11 passes for 147 yards and two touchdowns. After what he was able to do during his rookie season last year—65 catches for 1,129 yards and eight touchdowns—this season has felt like a letdown.

Despite this, Watkins seems to be enjoying his life. With the Bills on a bye this week, he took his daughter down to Disney World and has been documenting some of their experiences on Instagram:

Unfortunately, that has led to some NFL fans criticizing Watkins for not spending more time in the trainer’s room during the bye week. Both Bills fans who want to see him get healthy and fantasy owners who used high draft picks on him this season have taken to IG to leave messages for him under his Disney photos. And while Watkins didn’t respond to those people right away, he did eventually decide that he needed to say something. So he left this comment on one of his photos:

He has since deleted the comment, which was probably a good idea. But can you really blame him for letting his frustration get the best of him?
