Bills wide receiver Cole Beasley read a prepared statement to the media yesterday explaining why he isn't getting vaccinated. People reacted as if what he said was the most horrifying thing they've ever heard.
It's not. Here's what Cole said.

He then dropped a rap song that further addressed the vaccine controversy.

As I said people weren't happy with Cole's statement and I'm sure they hated the track too. Not Rachel Bush, who is married to his teammate Jordan Poyer. She showed support for what Beasley had to say on her Instagram story.
Here's where I land on the whole thing. If you want to get the vaccine then go get it. If you don't want it, or have an underlying condition, or have already had COVID and don't want to get it, then don't.
I know that doesn't sit well with the folks who get an erection from telling people what to do, but you can't force people to do things they don't want to.
There are going to be players, for whatever reason, that don't take the vaccine. It is what it is, let's talk about football and beautiful women.
