Nobody parties harder at NFL tailgates than the Bills Mafia. However, sometimes their partying sides with being offensive, like tackling Muslim effigies.

Their latest episode of “I can’t believe you just did that!” involves members of Bills Mafia encouraging a female fan to tackle a dummy that they made to look like a Muslim effigy. That’s insensitive and not going to play well with many Muslims living in the United States.
The Monday Morning Quarterback’s Robert Klemko tweeted out the photo. Though it wasn’t heard audibly in the video, Klemko claims that someone from Bills Mafia said, “tackle the Muslim.” It make Buffalo look really bad.
Klemko did add in the comments that somebody in Bills Mafia mistook the effigy of what could have been of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for a Muslim man. Either way, that’s not a good look for the Bills.
Kaepernick has been the face of protesting in the NFL this season. His decision to take a knee during NFL games has not sat well with members of conservative America. After seeing Blaine Gabbert struggle at quarterback, Sunday will be Kaepernick’s first start of the 2016 NFL season.
