Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams was slammed by fans on social media for mocking a reporter’s wife on Friday.
Adams was criticized for his defence on a game-winning touchdown by Dallas Cowboys safety Jake Ferguson late on Thursday Night Football. The play saw the Cowboys take the lead just four and a half minutes from time.
Connor Hughes, a journalist for SNYtv, who has been covering the Jets since Adams played for New York, retweeted the play and captioned it: ‘Yikes’.
On Friday, Adams used the same caption – and a mocking emoji – when tweeting a photo of Hughes’ wife. Although Adams later deleted the tweet, fans rushed to condemn the post.
‘Jamal Adams is a piece of human trash,’ one fan wrote with a screenshot of Adams’ deleted tweet.

‘Jamal Adams has had a bad 24 hours,’ a second fan wrote.
A third fan said that Adams ‘hit rock bottom’ while a fourth simply called him ‘a loser’ for the comment.
Adams later added fuel to the fire by posting another tweet which read: ‘Don’t start nothin won’t be nothin’.
‘You got cooked last night,’ a fan commented. ‘Just take it like a man.’
Adams played his first three seasons in the NFL with the Jets before getting traded to Seattle in 2020. Adams made the last of his three Pro-Bowl appearances in his first year with the Seahawks.
Adams is yet to record a sack or interception this season with the Seahawks currently 6-6, sitting second in the NFC West.
