NEW YORK, NY – Tyler Bass, the kicker for the Buffalo Bills, has made the decision to delete his social media accounts following a barrage of online threats. This came after his missed game-tying field goal in Sunday’s divisional playoff loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The severity of the bullying prompted a local nonprofit cat adoption group, Ten Lives Club, to step in and raise money on behalf of Bass.

In a heartfelt statement on Facebook, Ten Lives Club expressed their support for Bass, referring to him as a “friend” who has gone out of his way to help their cause. The group condemned the hate and emphasized Bass’s skills as both a football player and a compassionate individual who had dedicated his time to assisting their organization and rescuing cats.

The repercussions of the threats were evident as searches for Bass’ social media accounts yielded no results, suggesting that they may have been removed or deactivated.

Ten Lives Club, known for its mission to reduce the number of euthanizations due to cat overpopulation, has rallied the community to donate $22 to their cause in Tyler Bass’s name. The symbolic amount not only represents his jersey number but also serves as a gesture of solidarity against online bullying.

This unfortunate incident has reignited painful memories for the Buffalo Bills and their devoted fans, famously known as the Bills Mafia. The phrase “wide right” has haunted the team ever since the 1991 Super Bowl when kicker Scott Norwood missed a crucial field goal that would have secured victory against the New York Giants. The Bills went on to lose that game, as well as the following three Super Bowls, solidifying their place in sports history for all the wrong reasons.

While the game itself showcased the thrilling drama that comes with playoff football, it also attracted attention due to the actions of pop star Taylor Swift. Swift, who is dating Travis Kelce, the superstar tight end for the Chiefs, was spotted in a suite alongside Jason Kelce, Travis’s brother. Jason’s enthusiastic display of shirtless celebration, beer chugging, and interaction with fans added an extra layer of entertainment to an already electrifying event.
