Josh Allen likes to keep things clean and straightforward, so when asked about a conspiracy theory, he destroyed theorists stating their claims are “stupid.” The NFL has its share of rumors and conspiracy theories and what’s interesting is that people with humongous followers spread these theories creating massive confusion among fans.
Damar Hamlin has been in the spotlight for a while, and after he was released from the hospital, the fans kept asking about his condition. These created an opening for conspiracy theorists to spread insane rumors.
Furthermore, Hamlin appeared at the Divisional match to cheer for his team and let fans know he is doing well. What caught the eye of theorists was Hamlin’s attire- the safety wore a hoodie, a mask, and a pair of sunglasses.

The ultimate opportunists for spreading conspiracies did not waste this opportunity and spread the rumor that it was not Hamlin but a “body double” at the Bills’ Divisional game on Sunday.
The conspiracy theory became very popular among fans to the point that people actually started to believe it.
Josh Allen recently appeared on the “Kyle Brandt’s Basement” podcast and bashed such rumors, saying, “That’s stupid.” Moreover, the quarterback did not stop there, as he had more to add.
- Bills’ WR Stefon Diggs reportedly bolts from the stadium after yelling at QB Josh Allen during the NFL playoff, which ends in a season-ending loss to the Bengals.
What did Josh Allen say?
In the podcast, Brandt asked Allen whether the theories were true, and Josh bashed it right away, calling the ideas “stupid.”
On the other hand, Allen wanted to know whether the mainstream media was behind these rumors, and Kyle confirmed it, saying that not only the mainstream media but people with loads of followers are also involved.
Then, Josh confirms, “There’s absolutely zero chance. That’s the Damar Hamlin. That’s our guy. That’s our brother.” Allen also mentions that Damar, with his “swagger” look, was with the team the whole time- “pre-game” and “post-game.”

Finally, Allen requested the fans to “stop that s***.” There is no reason for the Bills to bring a body double to the event making the theories completely irrational.
What do you think? Was Damar Hamlin in the game? Or was it really a “body double”? Share your opinion in the comments.
