Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown was accused by his former chef of taking a fake COVID-19 vaccination card. According to a report from Tampa Bay TimesSteven Ruiz (chef) claims he received a text message from Cydney Moreau, Brown’s girlfriend, in early July saying Brown was willing to pay $500 for a fake Johnson & Johnson vaccination card .
The Times was provided with a screenshot of the alleged text message conversation between Ruiz and Moreau. The exchange is as follows:
Moreau: “Can you get a COVID card?”
Ruiz: “I can try.”
Moreau: “JNJ shot. AB said he’d give you $500.”
Ruiz told the Times he couldn’t get a fake COVID-19 vaccination card, but when he visited Brown’s home a few weeks later, Brown showed him fake cards he had obtained elsewhere. . Ruiz said that Brown has told people around him that he’s worried about the negative effects of vaccines on his body.
Following an extensive education process conducted throughout our organization this past season highlighting the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccine, we received completed immunization cards from all Tampa Bay Buccaneers players and submit necessary information to the NFL through a process established in accordance with league policy. All immunization cards were reviewed by Buccaneers staff and no abnormalities were noted.
CBS Sports NFL Insider Josina Anderson report that in the Buccaneers there is a sense that the allegation is financially motivated. “This whole thing is about getting paid,” a source told Anderson. “There’s no proof.”
According to the Times, Ruiz said he was talking about the matter now because he was owed $10,000 by the receiver, which he was unable to recover after settlement negotiations with Brown’s attorneys yielded fruitless results. fruit. Brown, who has been out since Week 6 with a leg injury, did not respond to a request for comment from the Times nor did the team take him out, according to the report.
If Brown is found to have tampered with a COVID-19 vaccination card, there are bound to be dire personal, professional and financial consequences. NS Green Bay Packers and Aaron Rodgers was fined after Rodgers was found to have violated the league’s COVID-19 protocol, and the same is probably true for Brown and the Bucs. In October, NHL player Evander Kane is prohibit for 21 games for falsifying vaccination cards.
