‘I’ve always treated people how I want to be treated’: Stefon Diggs speaks out after a Bills reporter was heard claiming she has ‘no control’ over the WR… as he blasts her comments as ‘hurtful’ and ‘insulting to my character’
Stefon Diggs has hit back at a Buffalo Bills reporter who has claimed she has “no control” over the wide receiver’s actions when it comes to interview requests, as he labeled her comments as “hurtful” and “insulting” to his character.
Maddy Glab, who has been reporting on the bills since 2019, was heard making comments about the 29-year-old Diggs in a conversation with a media colleague during a team news conference on Wednesday.
Without knowing the microphone was still on, she said of Diggs’ media duties: “There is no control over Stefon Diggs. Dude’s gonna do what he wants to do. He looks at me and says ‘F you’… that’s how he treats everyone.”
Glab later apologized for her offhand comment and shared a statement saying she meant no will and respected “the hell out of Steffon Diggs,” not to mention that he was one of her favorite players to face in recent seasons defeat.
On Thursday, however, it appeared the three-time Pro Bowler was still bothered by what happened the day before.

“The audio shared was very hurtful,” Diggs shared on X, formerly known as Twitter. ‘And it was an insult to my character and to the way I was raised. I have always treated people the way I want to be treated. I greet everyone with a smile and respect. From the people in our café to the people who keep our building clean and tidy.’
Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs advised his brother to drop the Bills after the debacle.
‘Thu! They turn on you so quickly,” he wrote on X. “You need to find your brother somewhere safe.”
Earlier this week, amid reports that he was unsettled in Buffalo, Diggs told his Bills teammate Von Miller that he is “lucky” to have Josh Allen as his quarterback, despite claims of a rift between the pair.

He also told Miller that people like to “dive too deep” into speculation about his future.
Diggs was one of the few positives the Bills were able to take from their opening loss to the New York Jets on Monday night, in which the hosts clinched the win with an incredible punt return touchdown in overtime.
Nevertheless, the wideout still managed to catch 10 passes for 102 yards and score the team’s only touchdown that night.
Next up for Diggs and the Bills is the Las Vegas Raiders’ visit to Buffalo on Sunday night.
