Stefon Diggs has hit back at a Buffalo Bills reporter who has claimed that she has ‘no control’ over the wide receiver’s actions when it comes to interview requests, as he blasted her comments as ‘hurtful’ and ‘insulting’ to his character.
Maddy Glab, who has covered the Bills since 2019, was heard making the comments about Diggs, 29, in a discussion with a media colleague at a team press conference on Wednesday.
Without knowing that the microphone was still on, she said of Diggs’ media duties: ‘There’s no control over Stefon Diggs. Dude’s gonna do what he wants to do. He’ll look in my face and say ‘F you,’… that’s how he treats everybody.’
Glab later apologized for her clumsy remark, sharing a statement in which she said that she meant no will and respects ‘the hell out of Steffon Diggs,’ not to add that he has been one of her favorite players to cover in recent seasons.
On Thursday, however, it seemed like the three-time Pro Bowler was still affected by what happened a day earlier.

‘The audio shared was very hurtful,’ shared Diggs on X, formerly known as Twitter. ‘And was insulting to my character and and to how I was raised. I’ve always treated people how I want to be treated. I greet everyone with smiles and respect. From the people in our cafe to the people that keep our building in clean & in order.’
Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs advised his brother to ditch the Bills after the debacle.
‘Tuh! They turn on you so quick,’ he wrote on X. ‘Gotta get bro somewhere safe.’
Earlier this week, amid reports that he’s unsettled in Buffalo, Diggs told his Bills teammate Von Miller that he is ‘happy’ to have Josh Allen as his quarterback despite claims of a rift between the pair.

He also told Miller that people like to ‘dive too deep’ into speculation regarding his future.
Diggs was one of few positives for the Bills to take from their opening defeat by New York Jets on Monday night, which saw the hosts snatch victory with an incredible punt return touchdown in overtime.
Nevertheless, the wideout still managed to catch 10 passes for 102 yards and to score the team’s only touchdown on the night.
Next up for Diggs and the Bills is the visit of Las Vegas Raiders to Buffalo on Sunday evening.
