Arizona safety Budda Baker had a tremendous outing on Sunday, recording 15 tackles while leading the Cardinals to a 24-20 win against the San Francisco 49ers.
Baker, however, received some horrific direct messages from a 49ers fan after the game — something the team quickly condemned on Tuesday afternoon.
Baker receives horrific, racist direct messages
Baker shared a screenshot of three messages he received on Instagram, all of which contained multiple racial slurs.
The messages can be seen here, however they are extremely NSFW.
“I’m all good with opposing fans talking trash,” Baker wrote on Twitter. “But this right here man. All you can do is pray for people like this.”
The person who wrote them appeared to blame Baker for San Francisco tight end George Kittle’s knee injury. Baker tackled Kittle late in the first half on Sunday, which sent him limping to the sidelines and out of the game briefly.
The play was perfectly legal, and Kittle later returned to finish the game. He is questionable for their matchup against the New York Jets on Sunday.
