Ultra-liberal New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has now been forced to abandon his plans for attending a playoff game for the Buffalo Bills after thousands of fans signed a petition objecting to it.
Much of the anger of the more than 45,000 signees came as a result of Cuomo demand that fans only be able to attend the game at 10 percent capacity.
As The Daily Wire reports:
After thousands of fans of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills signed a petition titled, “Ban Andrew Cuomo from Buffalo Bills Stadium playoff games,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo reversed his decision to attend the first home playoff game of the Bills, saying he was giving his ticket away to an ECMC nurse.
The petition, which had zoomed to over 45,000 signatures by Friday, read, “So Cuomo is going to attend our playoff game after telling us that we can only attend at less than 10% capacity? If he thinks he has more right to a seat in that stadium over people who have waited over 20 years for this opportunity, then people better be there to protest his entry. This is OUR team! This is OUR home. We don’t want you here.”
The petition also showed a T-shirt targeting Cuomo with a link to the product.
On December 30, Cuomo tweeted: “NYS, @NFL and @BuffaloBills have come to an agreement to allow >6,700 fans to attend the first home playoff game. The stadium is outdoors. Every fan must test negative before game, wear a mask & social distance. There will be post-game contact tracing. To Bills fans — be smart.”
