    Tampa Bay Buccaneers Antonio Brown obtains fake vaccination card

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Antonio Brown is accused of getting a fake COVID-19 vaccination card, as reported by the Tampa Bay Times. The report states that a former personal chef, Steven Ruiz, claims that Brown asked his girlfriend to contact Ruiz to get a fake vaccination card showing he received the Johnson & Johnson shot. Ruiz provided text messages that showed Brown’s girlfriend offering $500 for the fake card.

    However, Ruiz explained he was unable to acquire the fake card, per ESPN. Allegedly, Brown a few weeks later showed him cards he had himself and his girlfriend purchase. Brown reportedly was unwilling to receive the vaccine at the time because of the possible side effects. However, he may have potentially received the shot at a later date.

    Ruiz decided to go public with the accusations after Brown failed to pay $10,000 owed to him, per ESPN. Kevin Blatt, a spokesperson for Ruiz, gave the Buccaneers the names of two players with fake vaccination cards. The Buccaneers released a statement as a result: “received completed vaccination cards from all Tampa Bay Buccaneers players.”

    “All vaccination cards were reviewed by Buccaneers personnel and no irregularities were observed,” the team said.

    Sean Burstyn, Brown’s attorney, reported that Brown is vaccinated. He also added, “If Antonio’s doctors and the guidelines require a booster shot, then at that time, he’ll be happy to do it live on TV and everyone can come to watch.”

    Brown’s girlfriend denies all accusations and knows Ruiz.

    Tampa Bay Buccanneers deal the NFL policies

    NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy released a statement that league representatives have been in contact with the Buccaneers and will review the matter. McCarthy also emphasized that no other cards were in question and the responsibility to verify the authenticity of the cards is the teams. No NFL team reported any issues during the vaccine and verification process, per ESPN.
