There is a fine line between dunking on a rival and giving them motivation to ‘just beat their head in, in real life.’ That’s the line the Los Angeles Chargers social media team crossed according to Las Vegas Raiders star wide receiver Davante Adams with their post comparing the six-time Pro Bowler, three-time first-team AP All-Pro receiver to a garbage-flavored Pop Tart.

Davante Adams Sounds Off about Chargers Social Media Post

Chargers Social Team Davante Adams Pop Tart Post

During his appearance on the Up & Adams show with Kay Adams, the host asked him, “How responsible do you feel for the entire Chargers team giving up on their coach in this game.” Referring to the 63 points the Raiders hung on the Chargers in Week 15 that resulted in the firing of Brandon Staley. Adams caught eight passes for 101 yards and a touchdown in that game. Davante pivoted away from talking about that specific game and to the team’s social media post and its inaccuracy. Here is what he had to say;

“They posted me and then like a trash can or something like that. I thought about responding on social media to it and and being funny there, but I figured it’d be better to just beat their head in in real life and continue doing it my way because my first game against them I don’t know they, clearly forgot like 10 catches 141 yards and a touchdown and then the next time that same year it was like 177 yards and two touchdowns. I think it was that game.

So I just wanted to kind of remind them what they’ve been going through as it pertains to playing against me. Hopefully the people that made that post because it’s not the player’s fault they didn’t have anything to do with the post but this is directed strictly toward the Charger social media page. Please keep my name out your mouth.”

In his four games against the Chargers since going the Raiders, Adams has caught 34 passes for 494 yards and four touchdowns. The teams have split the series with two wins each. In addition to the two games he mentioned from 2022, Adams caught eight passes for 75 yards in Week 4 and eight for 101 in the aforementioned Week 15 game.

The Chargers will kick off the 2024 season against Adams and the Raiders at SoFi Stadium on Sunday, September 8th. They will also wrap up the season in Vegas in Week 18 against the Raiders on January 5th.
