Eli Apple trolls Stefon Diggs with Cancun meme, seemingly mocks Damar Hamlin after Bengals beat Bills

Some lessons last a lifetime. Others continue until they are faced with a dilemma again.

Such is the case with Bengals cornerback Eli Apple. Apple, who made waves last season by relentlessly mocking the Chiefs after the Bengals beat them in his AFC Championship game, scored a winning touchdown in the Super Bowl, but the experience I didn’t seem to learn anything from

After the Bengals defeated the Bills in this year’s divisional round, Apple took to Twitter to ridicule the emotional response to those who criticized his reaction to the loss of Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs.

He also appeared to swipe Bills’ Dummer Hamlin, using Hamlin’s signature heart hand as an emoji.

“One, two, three, cancun!” is a reference to the taunting cry that originated with Nick Van Exel. In 1998, Van Exel was deeply rooted in meme history before memes even existed.That’s when Van Exel announced before Game 4 of his Western Conference Finals against the Jazz, “Cancun! Instead of ‘Lakers!’

As a result, NBA players frequently troll each other. Patrick Beverly is perhaps the most infamous example, trolling Damian Lillard in 2020. Perhaps that’s why it was a top priority for Apple.

But Apple was just getting started. While the Bengals were preparing for the Chiefs, his entire timeline was retweeted with memes mocking Diggs and Josh Allen, and it was also noted Diggs yelling at Allen on the Bills’ sidelines.

Apple has been testing the waters for a revival of trash talk for some time now. He and the Bengals defense took aim at Tom Brady after the Bengals defeated the Buccaneers after Brady called them “pretty tough.” Apple replied, “The future is now, old man.”

After the Bills game, Apple played pretty good every game, causing a key pass breakdown on 4th down, but he was clear about his feelings.

Apple is sowing seeds now, but reaping isn’t all that fun.

Unless the Bengals win the Super Bowl this season, we can expect similar results from him. Especially when he seems to be mocking a problem as serious as Hamlin’s on-field collapse that happened to his team just a few weeks ago.
