Russell Wilson is once again dividing the Internet due to his latest postgame comments.
On Monday night, Wilson was loudly booed by Seahawks fans in his return to Seattle after being traded to the Broncos in the offseason.

During his postgame press conference, Wilson said he wasn’t bothered by the boos because plays for an audience of one, God.
“For me personally, I didn’t waver, they may cheer for you, they may boo you, they’ll love you one day, and hate you the next, that’s sports. At the end of the day I’m going to keep competing, I’m going to keep battling, I know who I am.
“I think for me I’m just grateful God has given me the chance to play this game to sit here in front of you guys and say, it’s all for his glory alone and not for anybody else’s, I play for an audience of one.”
Some fans didn’t like Wilson’s postgame speech and called him “corny.”
I’ve never seen a more annoying and corny individual in my entire life? https://t.co/bczGrxYBWe

Hahaha I’m so glad I don’t have to pretend to like this cornball because he’s my friends QB1.

I honestly think Future turned Russ into a corn ball. I don’t ever remember him being THIS corny until he starting being with Ciara. pic.twitter.com/ld8S84N1Op

Others went on to defend Wilson over his religious speech.
Don't see a problem with the answer. Y'all don't like him. https://t.co/kDLqbYUZDi

The fact that people are mocking him making jokes about him due to his beliefs and love for Christ is wild as hell. The same people who grew up in church have allowed social media to turn them against Christ. https://t.co/XaMUJX0266
