The Cincinnati Bengals walked out of Highmark Stadium with an impressive win over the Buffalo Bills this past weekend, but that didn't stop one player from stoking the fire of this budding rivalry. Bengals cornerback Eli Apple, known for his less-than-friendly takes, went on Twitter to criticize a series of Tweets from Stefon Diggs.
But, in classic Apple fashion, he took things way too far with some shade at Damar Hamlin. Bills edge rusher Shaq Lawson saw the exchange and was not pleased.
He fired back Tuesday afternoon on Twittey.
Lawson sets him straight, "You played a good game [Eli Apple] but disrespect my bow [Damar Hamlin] situation that s*** get you beat up frfr (for real for real). Keep it on the field," read Lawson's Tweet.
Lawson's message, along with thousands of other Twitter replies from angry Bills fans, got the point across to Apple.
The Bengals cornerback walked back his perceived shade with a kind message to Damar just moments later.
Here is Apple's original Tweet and walk-back, for reference.
