Glab was caught on a hot mic ripping the wide receiver while reporters waited for him to arrive at the post-game press conference.
“There’s no control over Stefon Diggs,” Glab says. “Dude’s going to do what he wants to do. He’ll look in my face and say F you. That’s how he treats everybody.”
Yikes: A #Bills reporter was talking trash about Stefon Diggs but didn’t realize the mics were still on and caught everything..

After she was called out for her comments, Glab took to social media to issue a ntes app apology to Diggs.
“I want to take ownership for what I said today,” Glab wrote. “I am very sorry for what I said and meant no ill will. I respect the hell out of Stefon Diggs, and he has been one of my favorite players to cover.
“[Diggs] has great character and treats us media with lots of respect… Stef marches to the beat of his own drum and I love that about him. He has a playful relationship with our video department, so that’s why I said he probably wouldn’t say yes to me grabbing him for an interview.
“I should not have said what I said, and I apologize for that. Stef is not in the wrong, I am.”
