Eli Apple Bengals NFL: Why has the CB shown hate Saints and Giants' fans on Twitter?

3 months ago 86

Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Eli Apple surely experienced the most glorious moment of his career last Saturday afternoon when he deflected a pass from Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill.

That deflection ended up leading to a Logan Wilson interception with 20 seconds to play that set the stage for Evan McPherson's 52-yard game-winning field goal to give the Ohio Stadium team its first-ever playoff win on the road to visit the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 30.

Rage against Giants and Saints fans

But far from this fact sparking Apple's happiness with his current team, the cornerback simply used his energy to talk trash about the fans and even the cities of two of his former teams, the New York Giants and New Orleans Saints.

"Idk which fan base I hate more, prolly the saints but It's close wit the giants it's a toss up," Apple tweeted.

Apple was selected in the 2016 NFL Draft in the first round by the Giants out of Ohio State.

During his time with the G-Men, his relationship was chaotic, in the 2017 campaign he was benched for disciplinary reasons and was later fined by interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo for his social media activity to the point that he was traded for two draft picks to the Saints.

Against the city of New Orleans

"New Orleans is the dirtiest smelliest city and has the worst food ever, it's that swine and crawfish thts killin yall brains," Apple tweeted.

In the 2020 season, he was again without a team and after reports of interest from the Las Vegas Raiders, the Carolina Panthers took him but he only played two games and was placed on the injured list.

In the 2021 season, the best of his career, he was signed by the Bengals and is already one win away from playing in Super Bowl LVI.
