Le’Veon Bell apologizes for airing Andy Reid drama on Instagram, but stands by statement

One day after Le’Veon Bell made his thoughts clear (or maybe a little too clear) about his time with Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs, the free agent running back again took to Instagram, this time to explain himself.

The former Chiefs running back made headlines Saturday when he said “I’ll never play for Andy Reid again…I’d retire first” in an Instagram comment. The message quickly picked up steam across the rest of social media, and seemingly represented yet another burned bridge for Bell.

On Sunday, Bell posted on his Instagram story a screengrab of an angry message containing a racial slur he had received from an apparent Chiefs fan, telling him he was no longer welcome in Kansas City.

Bell went on to post a 202-word response, which read as follows:

I said what I said & I don’t regret at all what I said…for those who have a PERSONAL PROBLEM with me because of what I SAID, that’s fine…you have your right!

just understand I ALSO have MY RIGHT for how I feel about MY PERSONAL problem with dude because of what HE SAID to me!
