An NFL player has gone viral for vowing that he’d rather “die of covid” than follow the league’s new rules for unvaccinated players.

Published Wednesday, the new rules require every unvaccinated player to undergo daily testing, wear a mask inside the league’s training facilities, engage in social distancing, avoid interacting with “people outside of Team Traveling Party during team travel,” abstain from any “social/media/marketing/sponsorship activities” and more.


In a PSA published to Twitter on Friday, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley made it clear that he’d rather risk contracting the coronavirus and even be forced out of the league than abide by the new rules.

“Hi, I’m Cole Beasley and I’m not vaccinated! I will be outside doing what I do. I’ll be out in the public. If your [SIC] scared of me then steer clear, or get vaccinated. Point. Blank. Period. I may die of covid, but I’d rather die actually living,” he wrote.

“I have family members whose days are numbered. If they want to come see me and stay at my house then they are coming regardless of protocol. I don’t play for the money anymore. My family has been taken care of,” he added.

Beasley is reportedly worth $14 million.

“Fine me if you want. My way of living and my values are more important to me than a dollar. I love my teammates and enjoy playing ball because all the outside bs goes out the window in these moments. I just want to win the Super Bowl and enjoy these relationships that will be created along the way,” Beasley continued.

His post predictably triggered rage and insults from the religiously pro-vaccine left.

Look (*Language warning):

It doesn’t seem like a coincidence that, judging by their newsfeeds, virtually all of his critics are Trump-hating Biden sycophants who love the discredited Lincoln Project.

As for Beasley, outside of his coronavirus views, he appears to have some left-wing tendencies. Amid the devastating, deadly Black Lives Matter riots last summer, he released a statement vowing his support for the extremist group:

The reason he’s anti-vaccine, a position usually taken up by conservatives, is because he feels it makes no sense to seek treatment that he doesn’t need.

“I’m not going to take meds for a leg that isn’t broken. I’d rather take my chances with Covid and build up my immunity that way. Eat better. Drink water. Exercise and do what I think is necessary to be a healthy individual. That is MY CHOICE based on MY experiences and what I think is best,” his PSA continued.

“I’ll play for free this year to live life how I’ve lived it from day one. If I’m forced into retirement, so be it. I’ve enjoyed the times I’ve had. I’ll get to live freely with my wife, kids, and extended family forever. We’d get to enjoy the times that we missed from the sacrifices we’ve had to make just so I could play this wonderful game. So either way. It’s a win/win,” he added.

This isn’t the first time he’s triggered left-wing rage and disappointment. Last month he mocked left-wing savior Dr. Anthony Fauci after Fauci finally admitted that vaccinated Americans don’t need to wear a mask outdoors.

“I do that without being vaccinated. Is this illegal now?” Beasley sarcastically wrote.

In response, leftists pounced.
