The San Francisco 49ers were just one dropped interception away from making the Super Bowl last season, with Swiss Army knife Deebo Samuel playing a massive part. He’s truly a versatile weapon who can do it all offensively for the Niners, which is why it’s no surprise he’s looking for a sizeable extension as his rookie deal comes to a close.
However, as Samuel continues to negotiate with the 49ers, he revealed on Friday that he’s been getting death threats and even racial slurs have been thrown at him from fans.

Hey, for all y’all fans that’s in the DMs, death threats and racial stuff, like that don’t bother me, bruh,” the 49ers star said in the video. “It don’t. Y’all are the same ones that was just hoorahing and ‘Go Deebo’ and duh-duh-duh-duh-duh. Oh now y’all want to send death threats and send all this racial stuff. It don’t bother me bro. I’m cool, I’m chillin’, I’m happy.”
Absolutely unacceptable. This man was literally a hero for San Francisco just a couple of months ago and now he’s being treated like this? Come on. Samuel is reportedly looking to become the highest-paid receiver in the NFL, which is no surprise. He’s so valuable to the 49ers and believes he deserves a huge bag of money.
More drama was sparked last week when he removed everything to do with the Niners from his Instagram page, including pictures and bio info. Interesting, to say the least. Nevertheless, Deebo Samuel doesn’t deserve to be treated like this by his own fanbase.
