Buffalo Bills team reporter Maddy Glab was forced to apologize Wednesday after she was caught on a hot mic speaking negatively about wide receiver Stefon Diggs.
Glab, who worked for the Bills for several years, was heard saying she had “no control” over Diggs in a discussion with one of her colleagues on Wednesday.
Without knowing the microphone was still on, she told her colleague when asked if Diggs would handle any media duties, “There’s no control over Stefon Diggs.” The guy will do what he wants to do.
“He’ll look me in the face and say F you… that’s how he treats everyone.”
Glab’s remark about Diggs, the star wide receiver who has spent the last four years in Buffalo, was leaked online Wednesday as fans were stunned by her claims.

However, after the video quickly went viral, the Bills reporter herself took to social media to clarify that her comments were merely ironic.
“I want to take responsibility for what I said today,” she wrote in a statement. “I’m very sorry for what I said and I didn’t mean any harm.” I have a lot of respect for Stefon Diggs and he was one of my favorite players to cover.
“He has a great character and treats us media with a lot of respect.” He takes the time to talk to us, which he doesn’t have to do.
“For context, the media was waiting for the players to show up for press conferences when a reporter jokingly told me to get Stefon Diggs.”
“I said I have no control over him – Stef marches to the beat of his own drum and I love that about him.”
“He has a playful relationship with our video department, so I said he probably wouldn’t say yes if I grabbed him for an interview.”
“I shouldn’t have said what I said and I apologize for that.” “Stef isn’t wrong, I am.”
Diggs was one of the few positives for Buffalo in the disappointing loss to the Jets
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, as the hosts secured the victory with an incredible punt return touchdown in overtime.
Still, the 29-year-old managed to catch ten passes for 102 yards while also scoring the team’s only touchdown of the night.
Next up for Diggs and the Bills is visiting the Las Vegas Raiders in Buffalo on Sunday night.
