Deebo Samuel says he suffered death threats and racist comments
49ers receiver Deebo Samuel has earned a major contract. The issue has become a major focus in recent days, after Samuel removed all references to the 49ers from his social media accounts.
The fans of the team are aware of the situation. And they’re making Deebo feel it.
Samuel has posted a video in which he claims to receive death threats and racist comments in his direct messages on social media. He is sad and he is shameful, but it is not surprising. Fans constantly line up behind the laundry room when contractual disputes arise. The player, in the eyes of most fans, is always at fault, even if the team is unfair or unreasonable. Because the player, in the eyes of most fans, is the one who should be happy with whatever he gets.
Death threats constantly occur on social media. For whatever reason, they do not appear to be investigated and prosecuted in the same way that, for example, a death threat delivered verbally or in a letter sent to someone’s home would.
They are not just fans of the 49ers. The fans of each team behave this way. Shut up and entertain us. Stop being greedy or selfish. Take what they give you.
This is bullshit. He is wrong. Players take physical risks. Gamers are the reason people tune in. Players must get what they can while they can. And fans need to understand that they would like the same thing for their son, brother, nephew, cousin, friend or themselves.
