Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Eli Apple chose violence Sunday night when he pushed send on a tweet attacking the respective fan base of his former teams, the New Orleans Saints and New York Giants

“Idk which fan base I hate more,” Apple wrote. “Prolly the saints but It’s close wit the giants it’s a toss up.” As you would expect, his tweet didn’t sit well with Giants and Saints fans, who fired back at him with their own insults.

To his credit, Apple hasn’t only weathered the storm, he’s gotten off a few good responses, commenting on the Giants’ five-year playoff drought, and the uncertainty surrounding the future of head coach Sean Payton, who has roamed the Saints’ sideline since 2006.

Cause the Giants suspended you for conduct detrimental to the team….and then traded you 2.5 years after drafting you.

Or the Saints saw you getting burnt weekly and declined your 5th year option?

Maybe it’s not the teams, Eli. Oh right, I’m just a sucka boy. 👌
