Jerry Coleman, a radio personality for 105.7 The Fan in Baltimore, took a little bit of his air time to respond to some tweets by Buffalo Bills fans recently and if you read the headline, you know it wasn’t kind.
Rather than stick to the argument, Coleman made it personal by calling Bills Mafia founder Del Reid a “loser” for a tweet suggesting Bills head coach Sean McDermott should be in consideration for Coach of the Year. Coleman also called Reid a “clown” and pondered how he happened to be Twitter verified.
For those who may not know, Del Reid is the founder of 26 Shirts, a business releasing apparel with a new design every two weeks, with a portion of every sale benefiting a family in need or charitable organization.
During the segment, which can be heard here (or via the embedded tweet below), Coleman also took shots at John Wawrow of the Associated Press and the city of Buffalo in general.
Some took offense to Coleman’s words and Bills fan Steve Brown decided to do something about it. Noticing that Coleman’s mother suffers from the heartbreaking Alzheimer’s disease, he made a donation to the Alzheimer’s Association in Jerry Coleman’s name.
Twitter users who followed in Steve Brown’s footsteps have begun uploading proof of the same. This includes Del Reid who had this to say in response to Brown: “Same. Love and Support coming from the City of Losers.”

For the record, Coleman continued to disparage Reid and Wawrow after this, but we can’t continue updating his trollings. You can check it here if you’re inclined.
