WATCH: Bills Reporter Trashes Stefon Diggs On Hot Mic: “He’ll Look Me Right In My Face And Say F-U”

As a media member, the first thing you’re taught is to assume that all mics are “hot mics.”

Unfortunately, that rule slipped Buffalo Bills reporter Maddy Glab’s mind as she was caught criticizing wide receiver Stefon Diggs on a hot mic.

While waiting for a seemingly tardy Diggs to meet the media, Glab told fellow reports: “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.’ How he treats everybody.”

Glab clearly didn’t think her comments were going to be caught on tape and replayed for the world to hear. 

It may seem to some like she was talking crap about Diggs – but she didn’t say those words with a malicious tone – and also, who’s to say what she said isn’t true. 

After all, it’s not like Diggs has a spotless reputation. No, reputations aren’t always true, but it’s not the craziest thing in the world to think that Diggs is not the friendliest of people to the media. 

Regardless, Glab backtracked and apologized for her comments. 

“I want to take ownership for what I said today. I am very sorry for what I said and meant no ill will. I respect the hell out of Stefon Diggs, and he has been one of my favorite players to cover. He has great character and treats us media with lots of respect. He takes time out of his day to talk to us, which he doesn’t have to do … I should not have said what I said, and I apologize for that. Stef is not in the wrong, I am.”

Some people would prefer she just stand by what she said rather than apologizing with words she probably doesn’t mean.

However, we all live in the real world and know exactly why she apologized.

Diggs took to social media to respond to the situation…

“The audio shared was very hurtful. And was insulting to my character 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.”

“The media or fans may confuse my competitiveness that they witness on the field as who I am as a person. But off the field I’d never treat anyone how she described & have never said anything remotely close to that to her.”

“Idk why it was said, but this is an example of why people don’t want to deal with the media. It’s hard to fight the preconceived notions people have about you. Regardless of ever having a personal experience with them.”

“We get you all have a job. And I respect it, but please remember I’m a human just like you. And if I ever made you or anyone else feel like you can’t approach me. I apologize.”

Many people are misunderstood, and that could very well be the case with Diggs. Only a small amount of people know if what Glab said is true or not. 

Regardless, she apologized (whether she meant it or not), and Diggs had his say on the matter. 

In other words, it’s time to move on in Buffalo. Coming off their nightmare loss to the New York Jets on Monday Night Football, the Bills need a win against the Raiders on Sunday – and Diggs is sure to play a pivotal role, as he usually does.

What do you think of the situation?

Unfortunately, Glab’s relationship with Diggs and the entire team has probably taken a massive hit.

But again, just assume every mic is hot, Maddy!
