Damar Hamlin: Josh Allen debunks conspiracies related to 'body double' as he calls them 'stupid'

Buffalo Bills star Josh Allen refutes Damar Hamlin ‘body double’ related conspiracies as he calls them ‘STUPID’ and answers doubters by telling them to ‘stop the bullshit that’

NFL quarterback Josh Allen has responded to conspiracy theorists’ claims that a ‘body double’ by Damar Hamlin was in the Buffalo Bills-Cincinnati Bengals playoff game, telling them to ‘stop the s***’ that.

Appearing on Kyle Brandt’s Basement podcast on Tuesday, the 26-year-old was asked if he could confirm whether a ‘clone’ or the actual football safety appeared in the team’s locker room, as shown by the Bills’ social media team. Doubters’ claims stem from the fact that Hamlin was masked and wearing a hoodie as well as alien frame shades, which did not allow people to see much of his face.

“Yeah, that’s stupid,” Allen said. ‘One, that’s Damar’s swag. He likes to wear it. Two, he was in our locker room pre-game, so yes it was Damar.’

‘There is absolutely no chance. He’s Damar Hamlin, that’s our man, that’s our brother. He was with us pre-game, post-game,’ he added. ‘He was in the suite with his family, his younger brother. That’s 100 percent why people need to stop that bullshit.’

Postgame Bills players were content with the sight of their ‘brother’ and teammate in the locker room.

‘His presence alone I think speaks volumes,’ Morse told ESPN. ‘[…] He’s not a big rah-rah guy and I’m sure that at some point he’s pretty tired of people asking how he’s doing or being put in a position he didn’t ask to be put in. His presence alone, his smile, his positive energy, which he always has, always injects energy and good vibes into the group.’
