ZACH Wilson’s father allegedly said an inappropriate comment during a photo op between his son and a fan.
The sophomore New York Jets quarterback has continued to make headlines after his ex-girlfriend brazenly accused him of hooking up with his mom’s best friend.
A fan couldn’t resist the chance to snap a flick with Wilson after running into the NFL star at a restaurant in Draper, Utah.
“Ran into @ZachWilson today and asked for a pic,” the fan tweeted along with a pic of the QB moments before Wilson’s dad allegedly poked fun at the drama surrounding his son with an inappropriate comment.
“His dad, as he’s taking the pic: ‘Say M*** on 3!'” Legends,” the fanatic added.
The US Sun has reached out to the fan for comment on his encounter with Wilson and his dad, but we have not heard back.
The social media firestorm surrounding Wilson began when his ex-girlfriend, Abbey Gile, called him a “homie hopper” and accused him of sleeping with his mom’s best friend.
Gile’s comments came after her alleged new boyfriend, Washington Commanders’ star and Wilson’s former college roommate, Dax Milne, shared a snap of the loved-up pair on his Instagram.
The post was captioned: “Word on the street”.
One social media user allegedly labeled Gile a “homie hopper,” prompting her to hit back.
She responded to the critic: “He (Wilson) was sleeping with his mom’s best friend… that’s the real homie hopper.”
The term “homie hopper” refers to someone who quickly dates their ex’s friend following a break-up.
The comments from the Instagram post have been removed, but not before a screenshot of the exchange went viral on social media.
The Jets QB finally broke his silence on the matter on Wednesday and seemingly poked fun at drama.
In an Instagram post, Wilson revealed that he and some of his Jets teammates were at the Gozzer Ranch Golf & Lake Club in Idaho before the start of training camp and had poor cell phone reception.
“Took the boys to @gozzerranchclub in Idaho before camp! Poor cell service…what I miss?” Wilson captioned the post, which contained a series of snaps of himself and several Jets players during the trip.
SOCIAL MEDIA SLEUTHS ON THE CASE
Since then, social media sleuths have been speculating on who the mysterious best friend of Wilson’s mom, Lisa, could be.
Sleuths have even asked Instagram beauty Nicolette Dellanno if she was the friend who slept with the Jets QB after the two were spotted at a New York Yankees game last month.
Rumors have since swirled that the pair are an item, with Wilson liking several of Dellano’s Instagram snaps.
The model has almost 40,000 followers on social media and regularly updates her fans with glamour shots.
And one of those admirers is Wilson, who commented with a shocked emoji face on her latest batch of selfies.
However, Dellanno has stayed silent on Wilson’s drama despite some of her followers bravely asking if she was involved.
One asked: “You’re not Zach’s mom’s friend?”
While another said: “Zach’s mom friend?”
But another user warned: “You have no idea if what you read is true. [Wilson’s] personal life is none of our business.”
Wilson, 22, was selected second overall in the 2021 NFL Draft and made the starting role his own at the Jets.
He played thirteen games last season as New York fell to a disappointing 3-10 with Wilson at the helm.
Through those games, he completed 213 passes for 2,334 yards and nine touchdowns.
Wilson’s mom responded to the allegations by posting a cryptic video about Satan and predators, warning about the dangers of social media.
