Browns QB Baker Mayfield is facing backlash over fans’ remark

Backlash from Baker Mayfield’s latest interview continues to mount after the Browns quarterback said he’d love to boo fans at their jobs – much like he did last season during a sluggish campaign in Cleveland.

Appearing on Wednesday’s Ya Never Know podcast, Mayfield said, “I’d love to show up in someone’s cubicle and just boo them and watch them collapse.”

Fans took to social media to troll Mayfield over his “stupid” comments.

“@bakermayfield feel free to boo my job if I collect a seven figure check,” one fan tweeted.

Mayfield, who has a guaranteed salary of $18.8 million next season, was also likened to “an immature crybaby” by another critic.

“Baker Mayfield is softer than warm butter. Worse, he’s now in the same category as Sam Darnold. If someone was making tens of millions a year in a booth, I’m sure they’d welcome the boos. You wouldn’t be an immature crybaby like these two.” a user tweeted.

Another wrote, “This has always been one of the dumbest shots of professional athletes. Your job is entertainment. You demonstrate an ability to entertain. This certainly doesn’t justify hate speech or any form of violence, but shut up on whining at fans’ boos. Fans don’t owe you any worship.”

Meanwhile, some fans were intrigued by the idea of ​​Mayfield booing, even saluting, her at work.

“I would like to officially invite Baker to come to my work and be ‘a fan.’ He can boo, make signs, yell at the referee (my wife)…I’m all for it.” a user expressed.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Mayfield said he feels “disrespected” by the Browns after they traded for embattled Texas quarterback Deshaun Watson last month and signed a record $230 million, five-year deal that will last was fully guaranteed.

The Browns became an unexpected entrant in the Watson Sweepstakes after a Texas grand jury ruled in early March not to indict the quarterback on criminal charges. However, Watson still faces 22 civil lawsuits from women accusing him of sexual misconduct and he could still be suspended from the league as the lawsuits against him are still ongoing.

Watson also avoided an indictment by a second Texas grand jury last month.

Though Mayfield remains on the Browns’ roster, the former first overall pick is “ready for the next chapter” and mentioned the Seahawks as a potential trade target after Seattle sold Russell Wilson to Denver in March.

“I’m looking for stabilization right now,” Mayfield said.

After the Watson trade, Mayfield asked the Browns for a trade, with the Colts being his first choice. Indianapolis later signed veteran quarterback Matt Ryan, who was traded by the Falcons.
