Despite his team getting the win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Minnesota Vikings corner Kris Boyd had some harsh words for fans afterward.

In front of a packed Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on Sunday, the Minnesota Vikings snuck away with a win over the New Orleans Saints.

The Vikings weren’t perfect during the matchup as they only won by three points, but apparently, Minnesota cornerback Kris Boyd wasn’t too thrilled with some of the reactions he saw online to his team’s victory. Boyd decided to share his feelings on Sunday with a Twitter post that he will likely be told to delete in the near future.

Comments from Kris Boyd to Minnesota Vikings fans are unnecessary

If you’re familiar with Boyd, you probably already know that he’s never been one to shy away from speaking his mind or expressing his emotions. But his tweet on Sunday feels a little too unnecessary.

What good is going to come from this post? Absolutely nothing. Boyd really thought it was a good idea to tell any Vikings fan who thinks the team still has things to improve to stop complaining and to shut the f**k up?

If he wants to talk about being ungrateful, he should look at himself in the mirror. Boyd has made more than a few boneheaded plays out on the field during his tenure with the Vikings, and he likely wouldn’t have even made the team’s roster this year if rookie corner Andrew Booth Jr. didn’t miss time this summer due to an injury.

Some fans may think Boyd’s tweet is funny and give him the attention he’s begging for, but a post like this is just a bad look for the cornerback and the team.

If he can’t handle some simple criticism after a less-than-perfect performance, then maybe he should take his own advice and “find another team.”
