On the latest episode of The Pivot podcast, Crowder referred to Wilson as both a “square” and a “goofball” while suggesting Ciara is only with him for the money. “If Russell didn’t have that bread Ciara wouldn’t be with him. Ciara, she has a good situation," he said. "You don’t leave Future and get with Russell Wilson. It’s a type. Everybody has a type … and I love him on the field but he’s fucking square."
While his co-hosts, Fred Taylor and Ryan Clark, pushed back against Crowder’s comments, it wasn’t enough to stop some people online from calling him out.
Wilson, who was traded from the Seattle Seahawks to the Denver Broncos last month, first began dating Ciara in 2015, and they later married in 2016. Ciara was initially engaged to Future in 2013, but she called off their engagement in 2014 because of his infidelity. She had one child with Future, and has two with Wilson.
After facing criticism on Twitter for his unprompted comments about Wilson and Ciara’s relationship, Crowder shared a photo of Wilson at the 2012 NFL Draft alongside his former girlfriend, Ashton Meem.
