The war of words between Mark Cuban and Cole Beasley continues to rage on after the former took strong exception to the latter’s stance on COVID-19 vaccines. The Buffalo Bills receiver has found himself in hot waters over his anti-vaccine comments on Twitter.

The two have been engaging in a verbal spar on Twitter for weeks. TMZ approached Cuban for his comments on the ongoing social media feud with the Bills star. The billionaire referred to Cole as a “good guy”, saying he’s still pushing for the player to get vaccinated.

“Getting vaccinated isn’t just about you, it’s about everybody else as well. There’s 16.9 million cancer survivors in this country. Three million-plus people who are immuno-compromised. And, when you don’t get vaccinated, it’s not just about you. It’s about other people as well,” the Dallas Mavericks owner told TMZ.

“Only place I get boo’d is at our home stadium. Then some of the same people want me to take pictures and sign autographs. I thought bills fans were the best in the world? Where’d they go? If the vaccine works then why do vaxxed people need to be protected from unvaxxed? #letemin,” he said in a Twitter post.

Beasley, on the other hand, is adamant about not getting the shots, saying he “may die of COVID, but I’d rather die actually living.” His comments have led him to receive a chorus of boos from the home crowd.
